Writer/Director/Producer: MILA TURAJLIC
Producer: CARINE CHICHKOWSKY
A locked door inside a Belgrade apartment has kept one family separated from their past for over 70 years. As the filmmaker begins an intimate conversation with her mother, the political fault line running through their home reveals a house and a country haunted by history. The chronicle of a family in Serbia turns into a searing portrait of an activist in times of great turmoil, questioning the responsibility of each generation to fight for their future.
A feature film documentary from director Mila Turajlic, award-winning author of Cinema Komunisto.

“Srbijanka herself: flinty, questioning, confrontational, unapologetic, a voice from yesterday which inspiringly refuses to be silenced” The Hollywood Reporter
