Документарац Немање Станковића приказан у Холивуду

У Холивуду је, у оквиру фестивала „Dances With Films”, одржана светска премијера документарног филма Немање Станковића „My Friend Tommy”. Поменути фестивал је специјализован за проналажење нових талената у филмској индустрији и већ 25 година одржава се у легендарном Кинеском театру.

Филм Немање Станковића говори о четрдесетогодишњаку Томију Лију, који је невин и никада раније није имао контакт са женама. Живео је у хришћанској корејској породици под условима сличним полицијским часу, и тако практично остао без пунолетства.

Филм је, по речима редитеља Станковића, приказ настојања да Томи „одрасте” на великом путу по Северној Америци.

– Постоји читава сакривена група одраслих људи од 18 до 24 године која нема сексуалног искуства. Више од три одсто одраслих Американаца преко 25 година су невини. Наш филм је покушај да на популаран начин скренемо пажњу на ову мањину и феномен огромне популације невиних људи – каже аутор филма.

Немања Станковић је филмски и музички аутор из Торонта. Филмске студије похађао је у Чикагу и Торонту. Рођен је пре 33 године у Београду. Издао је два албума реп музике, а жеља му је да поменути документарни филм прикаже и у родном Београду.
