A Day With The Comedians
Ritual disguising of people in a village in central Serbia. Comedians, as they call themselves, perform a dramatic scene, sing and dance, and in the form of primitive theatre, make a mockery on actual social and political situation.
Disappearance of Heroes
After recent political changes in Serbia, many streets in Belgrade named after persons and events of the World War II, changed their names. The film depicts the work of the Street and Squares Commission, appointed by the city of Belgrade, as well as reactions of individuals and groups impacted by recent changes. A niece of prominent anti-fascist political leader, a family that lost its members helping the resistance, an illegal courier in occupied Belgrade and many more face a forceful removal of monuments they hold sacred.
I was born in Belgrade in 1976, where I graduated in engineering. I have attended several film schools – at "Kvadrat" and at "Akademski filmski centar" where I made my first short films. My first feature-length film "The Disappearance of Heroes", won the Regional Grand Prix at the festival of documentary films Beldocs in 2009, it was subsequently screened at national TV and had international premiere at Trieste IFF. I have completed postgraduate studies at Faculty for dramatic arts, department for Media and advertising where I graduated in directing and producing promotional videos.
