Dovlatov // Довлатов by Alexey German Jr.

The film shows several days from the life of a young and unknown writer Sergei Dovlatov in 1970s Leningrad, on the eve of his friend’s immigration, the future Nobel laureta Joseph Brodsky. Dovlatov like many other banned writers and artists in the USSR attempts to live a normal life: to write, to mend his relationship with his daughter, to get a job - but alas, each day it becomes more and more difficult. In a series of life conflicts, intermittently funny and soul-piercing, we discover the life of an insightful, brilliant, ironic and very talented individual who tries to preserve his decency and talent in spite of the will of the state machinery.

Untravel // Neputovanja by Ana Nedeljković, Nikola Majdak Jr.


film about (local) patriotism, tourism and emigration… A girl lives in a gray, isolated country, enclosed by a huge wall. She has never travelled anywhere, but all her life she has dreamt of leaving for a perfect world called Abroad. However, she is afraid of what could happen if she tries to cross the border. After many years, dreams and fears, the girl finally gathers enough courage to set off on a journey for the first time. What sort of world will she find on the other side of the wall?

When Im Dead and Pale // Kad budem mrtav i beo by Živojin Pavlović


A seasonal worker, Jаnko Bugаrski a.k.a. Jimmy Barka, a man of questionable moral qualities and uncertain future, has been let go from his temporary job on a construction site. He and his girlfriend Lilica decide to leave the dire straits they have found themselves in – they go on the road, into the unknown with faith in a better tommorow. But, the couple soon splits up. Jimmy meets a local singer, Duška, who plies her trade in bars and becomes her lover, sparking a dream of a stage career for himself, too. He learns singing from Duška, but
he is not really good at it, so he can get gigs only at country fairs or military
garrisons. In one small town he meets a dental tehnician, Bojana. The two set off for Belgrade together to enter a talent pageant – where he is booed of the stage by the audience because of his folk style. Then, he once again meets Lilica, who has been ekeing out a living by stealing and conning people.
Jimmy begins a blackmail game with her, leading to a tragic end.
When I'm Dead and Pale by Živojin Pavlović

Freedom Landscapes / Pejzaži slobode

A film about Sonja Vujanović, the first Partisan women in Serbia. She was also a leader of the Resistance at Auschwitz-Birkenau. The film tells precisely that story, bespeaking that it is possible to think and practice resistance even in such a totalitarian situation. Sonja (96) still lives among us, in central Belgrade, in a small apartment that is beginning to look like an archive of a world that is vanishing, a story that must be told now or will disappear forever.
