PRETTY VILLAGE, PRETTY FLAME
Yugoslavia, 1996, 128 min, color

A harrowing response to the Bosnian conflict, this war drama disarms preconceptions and prejudices by adopting a strategy of temporal dislocation. Cutting from 1980 to 1992 (the first day of the war) to 1994 (a bloody hospital ward), and back again, it reveals its secrets with no little care. A Muslim and a Serb grow up and work together, but inevitably find themselves on opposite sides when a Serb unit is trapped inside a disused tunnel with no food or water.

SRDJAN DRAGOJEVIC
Serbian director and poet Srdjan Dragojecic was born in Belgrade in 1963. He has degrees in clinical psychology (1987) and TV directing (1992), and has published three books of poems.
