My favorite Burov quote is: "I am not a pessimist. I am deeply convinced that the cause of Bulgaria is not lost, and I would like to instill the same faith in you, to lift your hearts, to give you a little of my optimism, because optimism is a source of faith and energy, and the Bulgarian people need in today's moment, from one and the other, to endure, to hope and to act..." It is on this day that we must remember the great Bulgarians, to whom we owe our freedom and national identity. I am proud and honored that I had the opportunity to be the director of "The Rest Is Ashes" and to touch the thoughts of the comprehensively developed personality of Atanas Burov, in whose role the audience will see Asen Blatechki. All That Remains is Ashes is the first film I've shot in an era, and we used authentic footage from the bombing of Sofia from the archive. I dare to say that the result is a very high-quality and beautiful film, which reveals to the audience the events in Bulgaria from 1944-1945." Shares director Georgi Kostov. In the film, viewers will enjoy the good acting of famous actors such as Asen Blatechki, Evgeni Budinov, Ben Cross, Nathan Cooper, Dilyana Popova, etc., as well as an exciting romantic story.
