Proiecție desfășurată în prezența: regizoarei Mila Turajlić


Following Cinema Komunisto, Mila Turajlić goes deeper into her obsession with the recent history of Yugoslavia—this time, though, on her home turf, literally. When Communism entered the country, an unknown family forcibly entered part of the Turajlić family apartment. Since then, the strangers forced into the space by political fate remained a mystery abiding behind a locked door. Seeing history unfold under her central Belgrade window, the director’s mother found herself propelled to the beating heart of the pro-democracy protests—while all the while behind the locked door an oppressive silence prevailed. Public archives and home movies, as well as intimate, moving scenes shot by Turajlić paint the portrait of a country and of an era and question the political impulses that ran through her family for generations and now impatiently wait at the new generation’s feet.
