Focus Serbia

Visions du Réel's 2018 Focus is dedicated to Serbia. Serbian cinema offers a high quality cinema that cannot be separated from its recent history, bearing the scars of war and the multifaceted tensions in Yugoslavia. This cinema, far from locking itself in a painful past, reappropriates its own history and observes, often with great finesse and boldness, everyday life. Learn more >

The Focus Serbia will offer films and film projects that will be very exciting. Save the date: 13 to 21 April 2018.
