NO PLACE FOR YOU IN OUR TOWN
Once a flourishing mining hub, today Pernik is the “most hostile city in Bulgaria.” Here, Tsetso, Dado and their hooligan pals rule the roost. In the stadium they intimidate the opposing fans, on the streets they prey upon foreigners. “I am not tolerant and I’m proud of it,” Tsetso leers into the camera. A glimpse into an abyss caused by a lack of prospects. Anne Thomé
