Bulgarian movie "The Color of the Chameleon" of director Emil Hristov has been selected for this year's New Directors/New Movies Festival.

New Directors/New Films is presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and The Museum of Modern Art.

The festival is "dedicated to the discovery of new works by emerging and dynamic filmmaking talent," and the 2013 edition marks the film festival's 42nd year.

Representing seven countries from around the world, the initial seven selections are Emil Christov's "The Color and the Chameleon" (Bulgaria), Tobias Lindholm's "A Hijacking" (Denmark), Rachid Djaidani's "Hold Back" (France), JP Sniadecki's and Libbie Dina Cohn's "People's Park" (USA/China), Sarah Polley's "Stories We Tell" (Canada), Shane Carruth's "Upstream Color" (USA), and Mat?as Pi?eiro's "Viola" (Argentina).

"The Color of the Chameleon" centers on misfit youth turned engraving plant employee Batko Stamenov (codename: Marzipan), who is recruited by the secret police to infiltrate a book reading group.

The festival's website has described the Bulgarian movie as a "blackly comic, implacably deadpan" and and "all but unclassifiable puzzler."
