Sofia’s Last Ambulance

Art & Culture

The folks over at DocHouse are once again bringing a phenomenal documentary to a London screen in the form of Sofia's Last Ambulance. Screening on Thursday 2nd October over at Institute of Contemporary Arts, the documentary takes a look into the struggles faced by the ambulance service in the Bulgarian capital.

Sofia has been hit hard and finds itself as a city in which the medical infrastructure is in ruins – 13 ambulances operate across the city with several workers handling far more responsibilities than they should. As you follow the ambulance crew of Doctor Krassi, nurse Mila and driver Plamen you'll see the dedication of these individuals combined with their sense of humour and plenty of cigarettes.

There will also be a Q&A with the film's director Ilian Metev following on from the screening on Thursday night, helping to answer as many of the questions you may have as humanly possible.
