Tri filma iz Srbije nagrađena na festivalu u Los Anđelesu

Filmovi Maje Novaković, Igora Ćorića i Ivane Todorović nagrađeni su na upravo završenom 15. Festivalu filmova jugoistočne Evrope (SEE Film Festival) u Los Anđelesu, održanom onlajn.

Kako prenosi SEEBIZ, dokumentarac Maje Novaković "A sad se spušta veče" proglašen je najboljim u kategoriji kratkog dokumentarnog filma.

Njen film prikazuje život dve bake koje žive izolovano u brdima istočne Bosne. Priroda je entitet sa kojim bake "pričaju", osluškuju ga i poštuju. Film ističe nematerijalnu kulturnu baštinu kroz prikaz bajalica i rituala protiv vremenskih nepogoda, grada i oluje, navodi se u opisu ostvarenja.

Film "Prolaz" Igora Ćorića, nagrađen kao najbolji u selekciji kratkometražnog animiranog ostvarenja, nastao je pod okriljem studija "Artrake", a sinopsis u jednoj rečenici glasi: "Mali dečak se suprostavlja neprijatelju totemom koji je sam sagradio od ostataka svog plemena".

U kategoriji kratkog igranog filma specijano priznanje osvojila je Ivana Todorović za film "Kada sam kod kuće".

Film govori o Mariji, koja se nakon nekoliko godina života u inostranstvu vraća u porodični dom da bi se suočila sa traumom iz detinjstva.

Vlade Divac

A first round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1989 NBA draft, Vlade Divac went on to become one of the first European players to have an impact on the NBA.

In 1985, Vlade Divac was one of 15 young boys from Slovenia, Bosna, Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia and Macedonia that won the gold medal in the University Games. This would prove to be a basketball team that is considered among the best ever assembled. They went on to win a gold medal at the European Junior Championships in 1986, a gold medal at the FIB A World Junior Championships in Bormio, Italy in 1987 (defeating Team USA twice in that tournament), and a silver medal representing Yugoslavia at the 1988 Olympics.
