Drugovi, ja se ni sada ne stidim svoje komunističke prošlosti / Comrades, I Am Not Ashamed of My Communist Past

Part of "Comrades, I Am Not Ashamed of My Communist Past"


With German surtitles /  With English surtitles / 

The country where theatre maker and actor Sanja Mitrović and actor Vladimir Aleksić have grown up, now exists only in imagination and memory: the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. In a dialogue between film and theatre, the personal memories of the performers are intertwined with the images of national film tradition and thereby show what is left of shared values like solidarity and social justice.
