“A Serbian Film” premieres at Cinema City Festival

Srdjan Spasojevic’s controversial debut “A Serbian Film” will screen within National Class selection, in out of competition cathegory. Film contains extremely brutal and explicit scenes and isn’t recommended to younger viewers or those sensitive to said content. Film crew is comprised of famous names such as: Srdjan Todorovic, Sergej Trifunovic, Jelena Gavrilovic, Karatina Zutic, Slobodan Bestic, Ana Sakic, Lena Bogdanovic and Lidija Pletl. Original score was signed by our hip-hop performer Sky Wikluh.

Lead hero is Milos, a retired porn star. He leads a quiet family life with his wife Marija and their six year old son Petar. During transition in Serbia, in times of great turmoil, he’s trying to make ends meet. A sudden call from his ex partner Lejla will change all that. Aware of his financial difficulties, Lejla introduces Milos to Vukmir – a shady, mysterious and obviously insane producer who is, besides that, politically well connected. Lead role in Vukmir’s new feature will provide him and his family for life. The contract demands of Milos not to know anything about contents of the film. Vukmir pulls Milos into a sequence of incredibly cruel and violent situations, determined to shoot a film never before seen, using people as cannon fodder. Trying to flee from that cinematic hell and to save the life of his family, Milos will have to sacrifice everything he has; his pride, morals, mind and perhaps even his own life. In Serbian “heart of darkness” where life carries no value, in a combat with the enemy both far stronger and pathologically disturbed, his chances of survival are infinitesimal.
