Kino Club Members in Jatagan Mala

Dušan Makavejev (1932-2019) a brilliant film director and expert on the subject, a man who has left his timeless stamp on Serbian, Yugoslav, European and world cinema, has recently left us. Although Makavejev is not with us in his physical form, the memory remains, stronger than ever.

The Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival will pay a tribute to this film visionary with an unusual event called Kino Club Members in Jatagan Mala. Members of the famous Belgrade Kino Club will recall their first steps in filmmaking by talking about the first (lost) film by Makavejev, Jatagan mala (1953). The session will feature screenings of some early works by Makavejev: Pečat / The Seal (1955), Antonijevo izgubljeno ogledalo / Anthony’s Broken Mirror (1957), Spomenicima ne treba verovati / Don’t Believe in Monuments (1958). A Kino Club gem Ruke ljubičastih daljina / Hands of Purple Distances (1962) by Sava Trifković will also be screened. The idea for this event came from the text by Nikola Lorencin for the Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival 50th Edition, when Makavejev received his life achievement award.

Everyone is welcome.
