Schedule on the Cinema City festival: Friday, Sep 1, 2017 @ 19:30 - Beogradska Indoor Cinema
In remote villages of Gora, on the slopes of the Šar Mountains, live the Gorani, a Muslim ethnic group speaking a Slavic language. The ﬁ lm follows everyday rituals of their men. Through villages, streets, herds of sheep and cows, mosques, and taverns, the ﬁ lm shows their simple lives, but also their natural and cultural heritage. The ﬁ lm shows them working, singing, talking, playing, praying, taking walks, and drinking while the mountains above and around them stand as a constant reminder of the impermanence of life.
