The real name of "Christo", the name which his parents had given him, is Hristo Vladimirov Javacheff. He is born in Gabrovo, Bulgaria.

It is true that he's only 23 years old when he emigrates in Austria in the late 1950-ies, and later becoming an American citizen in the early 1970-ies, but that doesn't mean that he has any reason what so ever to conceal or out right deny his ethnic origin the way he does every time the question of his roots arises. That's weak. That's pathetic.


The film was edited from approximately 750 hours of footage and the editing took over a year.
