Hristo Shopov plays Professor John Oldman, the protagonist of Jerome Bixby’s “THE MAN FROM EARTH”.

From acclamed writer of the original "Star trek" and "The Twilight Zone", Jerome Bixby, comes a story that trascends both time and space.

In “THE MAN FROM EARTH”’s thrilling screenplay, Bixby starts with an implausible idea which keeps growing until the unbelievable story becomes an undeniable truth. One of those stories that entrances us from beginning to end, leaving us breathless and desperate to know more with every minute that passes.

The plot revolves around John Oldman, an American university professor, who hosts his farewell party at his house with his fellow professors of the university who are surprised by his sudden decision to abandon a stable job and what appeared to be a comfortable lifestyle.

During the party, Oldman reveals to his colleagues that he is a man who has lived since the start of the human species, immortal without knowing why for 14,000 years.

„Преди около...няколко хиляди години /по субективната скала/, някой, за когото имам смътен спомен, че наричах „аз”, беше започнал да брои миговете, в които е бил жив. Наричаше ги, помня: ”единствените, всъщност мигове, в които всъщност съм бил жив”. Това, по което се отличаваха от всичкото останало време, беше, че в тях...през тях не му липсваше нищо и имаше всичко. Не бяха много, не бяха и малко.

„Човек от земята” е разказ за един сън. Сън, в който спомени от 14000 години се стоварват върху нас. За да поставят въпросите на днешния ден. За да дадат отговори за днешния ден. За да върнат невидимото в живота ни. Онова невидимо, което ни пречи да съществуваме като атоми; онова невидимо, без което преставаме да сме Галактики.

Когато, към днешна дата се опитвам, понякога, да преброя онези, всъщност мигове, в които, всъщност съм бил жив, се питам: какво съм правил през последните няколко хиляди години. После тръсвам глава, забравям и кротко заемам мястото си в кристалната решетка.

Докато не срещна /случвало се е, случва се.../ някой от тях – онези встрани – тихи, почти невидими...Онези, с въпросите без отговори и с отговорите на всички въпроси. Някой Човек от земята, който си позволява лукса да не забравя, да помни, да си остава Галактика.

Защото, струва ми се, ако все още ме мъчи нещо, това е въпроса: мога ли да си остана атом, без да преставам да бъда Галактика". - Георги Михалков.
