Priča o Americi, filmu i ocu: Reditelj Srđa Penezić vretio se posle tri decenije u Srbiju

Priču o životu u Americi, svom filmu "Dobrica" i ocu, Slobodanu Peneziću Krcunu, pratićemo u emisiji "Srbija na vezi"

Reditelj Srđa Penezić, proveo je više od tri decenije u Njujorku i Los Anđelesu, a pre nekoliko godina vratio se u Srbiju. Priču o životu u Americi, svom filmu "Dobrica" i ocu, Slobodanu Peneziću Krcunu, pratićemo u emisiji "Srbija na vezi" (RTS 2, 16.50), urednice Tamare Drezgić.

Peneziću je Amerika oduvek bila kulturno bliža, kroz muziku, književnost i film. Međutim, kada se posle više od 30 godina vratio u domovinu, shvatio je da se mnogo bolje oseća i razume sa našim ljudima nego sa Amerikancima. Da više pripada ovde, nego tamo. Jedan događaj u Americi inspirisao ga je da napiše scenario za film "Dobrica", koji je i režirao. Glavnu ulogu tumači Slavko Štimac, a film je okupio naše ljude koji žive u Srbiji i Americi, Mirjanu Joković, Radana Popovića.

Srđa će, u emisiji, evocirati i uspomene na svoga oca, Slobodana Penezića Krcuna, nekadašnjeg predsednika Izvršnog veća Skupštine Srbije, jednu od najvažnijih ličnosti posleratne Jugoslavije. Njegov život, ali i saobraćajna nesreća u kojoj je nastradao, 1964. godine, i danas predstavljaju jednu od najvećih misterija Titovog vremena.

Kada je 1980. godine, sa drugom, Velimirom Abramovićem, otišao u London, Srđa je maštao o tome da napišu roman. Posle godinu dana, Velja se vratio u Jugoslaviju, a Penezić je otišao u Ameriku. Živeo je najpre u Njujorku, gradu koji ga je mnogo podsećao na Beograd, a prelaskom u Los Anđeles počeo je da radi u struci. Tokom godina provedenih u Americi, Srđa je sretao mnoge naše ljude koji su iz različitih razloga napustili Jugoslaviju i Srbiju.

An Unconventional Handbook of Orthodox Theology

by Rev. Vladan Perisic

Foreword
by Fr John Behr

It is a great pleasure to see this work published, making available some of the most important writings of Fr Vladan Perisic over the last couple of decades available, together in one volume, to an English speaking audience. Fr Vladan’s work is well known in Serbia, and in broader academic and ecumenical circles. But it can now receive the much wider readership that it deserves, and, as a collected volume, its scope, coherence, and significance is sure to receive the recognition it deserves.

The eighteen essays collected here treat diverse topics, from academic theology (and its place in the Church) to questions of life and death, from historically oriented studies, on Sts Ignatius and Gregory Palamas, to contemporary issues, such as human rights and ecology. Each of them is characterized by meticulous scholarship and great insight, clarity of thought and expression.
