It is not easy to find an opportunity to see films from Eastern European countries. However, between Wednesday and April 30, a mini-festival of six films from Serbia, organized by the Serbian Embassy in Seoul, will be shown at the Korea Foundation Cultural Center’s cinema room. There is no showing on Sunday, April 29.
The films that will be shown were produced between 2004 and 2006.
The most anticipated film is the comedy “We Are Not Angels 2,” one of the most commercially successful Serbian movies, which critics praised for its unique camera work and editing. This movie is said to have influenced neighboring countries, such as Croatia, with the versions of Serbian pop culture that appear throughout the movie.
The 80-minute film was directed by Srdjan Dragojevic. It’s about Nikola, the divorced father of Sofia. She enjoys watching soccer or paint ball competitions on television, rather than playing with dolls. After Sofia turns 15, her beautiful looks attract boys, whom her father tries to keep away with great difficulty.
Other films that will be shown at the center are “The Most Beautiful Place since the Days of Yore,” “Tomorrow Morning” and “Ivko’s Feast.” All movies have English subtitles and admission is free.
