Yugoslavia on the Couch
The psychotherapist’s couch voyages the entire length and breadth of former Yugoslavia. On the couch the widest variety of people (e.g., presidents, musicians, war criminals, comedians, farmers, schoolchildren) will be invited to share the couch with each other and grapple with the question of what made Yugoslavia succeed and then fail and why Yugoslavia self-destructed at the level of the psychological and emotional. The film also has exclusive access to the behind the scenes production of a drama series where psychotherapist Miki Manojlovic treats his five patients, traumatized by the events of the 1990s nightly for 10 weeks.
