“The film follows a famous model and stylist Maja Atanasijevic in her lonely, but intense struggle to brink back forgotten values of a city “
Through a form of experimental documentary / video easy and its trailer, this project is conceived to offer one interpretation of a specific topic – erosion of cultural values of the capital city and its causes. An intimate story about Belgrade (then and now), told by a famous model and stylist Maja Atanasijević, is followed by her performances in the public space. This story targeted wide audience and launched again debate about the difference between Belgrade “natives” and “nonnatives”.
By questioning a feminist thesis that personal is political - this project investigates limits of its interpretation while testing perception of an intimate truth, in the specific conditions.
