After this, the full hall was left speechless by the Serbian “Motel Nana”, a great deed of Predrag Velinovic. This touching story about the ever-powering love which does not recognize borders, nations, or war has embedded its’ sublime strength in each present guest and made them lust for more. Even though the director was not present, there were many questions and comments from the public, giving all compliments about the main actors (Nikolina Jelisavac, Zijah Sokolovic and Dragan Micanovic) and asking about the real-life situation and relations of Serbia and Bosnia.
The last feast for the public’s eyes for this night was “Need a Craft for T’night” of the Montenegrin Milorad Milic. An unique story about one village which is constantly living flooded, as one with the water, and the crafts as the only means for practically all everyday chores. This film showed how people manage to handle all natural disasters and embrace them as something simply natural, without panicking, complaining or giving up. The film director was also a guest at the screening and most kindly explained how this whole situation appears and feels live and all the background of this story, answering questions of the interested public.
Author’s perspective: Milic is speaking about the opportunity that seldom any director has – the chance to experience the fusion of waves and the craft, the silence that freezes the bones and the horrible smell of municipal waste floating all over the water. He has defined this as “apocalypse”. The scenes that have lead the public to laughter and tears simultaneously, left many questions in the minds of all present guest… “why is it so???”. - Milorad Milic, director of “Need a Craft for T’night”
