… by offering a selection of short Balkan documentaries for free until August 17. On the occasion of the 20th edition, Rada Sesic, the festival’s programmer of documentaries, has picked what she herself calls ”… pearls of the documentary expression, powerful, lucid, intelligently structured, likeable, often even humorous. I believe, that showing the best of the regional short docs is really a treat, not only for the audience in the region itself, where the stories found its source, but for the whole world and its film lovers, because short forms are powerful, beautiful and memorable…”
The quote is from an interview with Sesic, first link below, the second one brings you to the films available.
11 films are recommended, let me point at “Real Man’s Film” by Nebosja Slijepcevic, here is the annotation:
“In Balkan every generation has its war. Sons are continuing fights started by their fathers. There are rifles and pistols in every hand. Concentration of arms has reached a critical point. Even the smallest incident would be disastrous to this fragile peace. Watching children playing with toy guns makes you wonder: what are we leaving to the next generation?”
