MakeDox Travelling Cinema

The Macedonian documentary festival, MakeDox, is on tour (2.8-11.8) and reports warmly from their stop in Vevchani, population 2500, during summer 3500-4000. Classical way of meeting an audience, here are some quotes from their newsletter: We set up the screen in the small amphitheater. When the 1962 film story about the fortune seekers leaving this region began, almost all seats were taken. The kids who expected a cartoon seemed to be the most interested in the documentary motion pictures and stayed till the end… We had a talk with some of the visitors. Ljubica (photo), an elderly woman said: ”I was born here. For many years I have lived in Belgrade and then returned. I make traditional costumes, there are only few left in Macedonia who make them. This cinema of yours, I like it. Especially the film about the fortune seekers. Some of them are my relatives at Plachikrusha myself (a farewell tree in Vevchani)…

Pure beauty, pioneer work in virtual online times – the personal direct meeting between film and audience.
