Heroina iz kraja: Dženeta Agović, Milica Batričević, 9:37, Serbia, 2019
Dženeta Agović is a nurse from Tutin, a rather closed community where she tries to create encounters of the local differences. With the other activists of the Impuls from Tutin, she supports and strengthens the other women, especially the most marginalised ones like refugees. Within their Festival od Women’s Friendship, proudly partnered with BeFem, she raises some sensitive questions nobody before didn’t dare. This story is colored by the music of Amira Medunjanin, to whom the authors are very grateful.
Rough Cuts, Miklós Barna-Lipkovski, 15:00, Serbia, 2020
Rough Cuts was recorded during the public protest in Belgrade last July. As the protest itself, the material was also growing chaotically, with no plan in advance. Facing some unexpected social turmoil, Mikloš Barna-Lipkovski and Relja Pekić, co-founders of the Center for Visual Anthropology, realized that they can’t watch things passively and record reality neutrally. With their cameras, they become active participants of the events unfolding, making direct interactions with the characters they meet. Among the others, they meet Ed Godsell (Irishman Eddie), whose footage was also included in this film.
