In Focus: IVANA THE TERRIBLE
Film by director Ivana Mladenović was shown today in National Theatre at 16:00.
Ivana works as an actor in Romania, but after she is confronted with some health issues, she decides to spend the summer in her small Serbian hometown by the Danube, surrounded by family. She is asked by the mayor to be the face of the local music festival, and she reluctantly accepts. But after her eccentric musician friends arrive from Bucharest, and her love life involving a much younger local boy becomes town gossip, Ivana is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Original protagonists, friends and family were invited to re-live the emotions and play themselves as fictional characters in a story about a woman who cannot find her place on either side of the Danube.
