The personal is the political, a point brought home to powerful effect by filmmaker Mila Turajlic through an intimate portrait of her mother. This award-winning documentary opens out like a spiral from the Belgrade apartment in which her elderly mother, Srbijanka, a former activist and university professor, lives. The apartment and those who have lived there serve as a prism through which we learn of their complicated history, often lived through turbulent times, and that of their homeland the former Yugoslavia.
THIS SERBIAN DOCUMENTARY ABOUT A FAMILY’S APARTMENT IN BELGRADE IS A FASCINATING STUDY OF HOW WAR AND POLITICS SHAPED THEIR LIVES.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
