The fundamental questions of human life about guilt, repentance, and redemption are posed in the two documentary essays ‘FACE AND UPSIDE DOWN’ and ‘SLEEP BABY SLEEP’, about the grief of the women from Sliven Prison who give birth to their children behind bars. Binka Jelyazkova diagnoses the public through the stories of her heroines. Both films did not appear on the screens after their creation, but only after the changes in 1989.
