 "Goodbye, Mama", a movie directed by controversial Italian-based Bulgarian actress Michelle Bonev, is to finally have be shown in theaters.

The movie's much awaited premiere is to take place on May 6 2011, the Bulgarian Telegraph Agency has announced, the exacct location of the event being yet unknown.

Ever since Bonev received the first ever 'Action for Women' award at the prestigious Venice movie fest in 2010, 'Farewell Mom' has not been shown anywhere. The award itself, however, triggered massive media scandals in both Bulgaria and Italy, as it turned out to have been fabricated especially for her courtesy of her 'friends', Italy's PM Silvio Berlusconi, and former Culture Minister, Sando Bondi.

Bulgaria's Culture Minister Vezhdi Rashidov already accepted two resignations over the case, handed by Alexander Donev, head of the Bulgarian National Film Center and Bulgaria's Deputy Culture Minister, Dimitar Derelviev, as it turned out the country's state budget has contributed with BGN 300 000 for Bonev's 'mysterious' movie.
