By The Grace Of God, Ralitza Petrova, 16mm and Hi8, Colour, Sound, 37 min, UK, 2009. Ralitza Petrova’s By The Grace Of God, follows the tragic odyssey of the character Jürgen, whose attempt to make contact with his imagined mother, the Queen of England, leads him to a sense of personal crisis, of aporia. Petrova’s film portrays Jürgen as a tormented outsider, ill at ease with the travails of contemporary life, who is destined to be ‘a man out of time’, a nobody searching for his illuminated heroes. Ralitza Petrova recently exhibited work at the Cannes International Film Festival, the Berlin Film Festival, Festival Signes de Nuit, Paris and at the Rio International Film Festival. She was born in Bulgaria and lives and works in London. DVD 2 includes the featurette 'Interview with Ralitza Petrova' with Elena Crippa and Cally Spooner, directed by Gordon Shrigley.
