In a film dealing with theatrical performance of Oliver Frljić about Aleksandra Zec, a girl of Serb ethnicity killed in the winter of 1991, along with other members of her family, hidden traumas burst on the surface, and theatrical rehersals turn into a collective psychotherapy.
Director Nebojsa Slijepčević received numerous awards for this film, but one of them particulary stands out, the prestigious Doc Alliance award given to the the author in Cannes. The jury of seven major film festivals gathered in a documentary alliance selected Srbenka as the best film, and members of the jury agreed that Srbenka is a very important and at the same time a universal story of the personal and collective injustice we carry as a heavy burden and an attempt to express that emotion through limited and yet powerful artistic expression.
Today's lecture will be directed, filmed and assembled, and will afterwards be publicly available. The idea is for the lecture to last for 45 minutes and that its content should cover content author's work from its initial idea to the festival and film distribution of the certain film. The added value of the project is contained in what will be left behind: a high-quality production and professionally directed recording of an expertise lecture that will, without any compensation, be forever available to all interested users, above all to some future Croatian and world filmmakers, critics, filmologists and movie historians.
