SINOPSIS:

Branko Ilić bio je jedan od predvodnika pobune protiv Miloševićevog režima u Srbiji u periodu 1998-2000. go-dine i lider studentskog pokreta Otpor. Hapšen je i pretučen nekoliko desetina puta, a za svoju borbu je 2000. godine u ime Otpora primio MTV nagradu “Free Your Mind”. Tačno deset godina posle petooktobarske revolu-cije, Branko se vraća u Beograd iz dobrovoljnog izgnanstva u rodnom Arilju. Zapošljava se kao šanker i privre-meno useljava kod Švabe, starog prijatelja iz vremena protesta. Za to vreme, poznata advertajzing agencija u kojoj je Švaba zaposlen užurbano priprema veliku kampanju za promociju potrošačkih kredita. Švaba i Branko odlučuju da 5. oktobra obeleže desetogodišnjicu pada Miloševićevog režima isped Skupštine Srbije. Posle akcije, u preplitanju stvarnih i izmišljenih ličnosti i događaja, padaju maske traumatizovanog srpskog društva zaglavljenog u tranziciji između socijalizma i kapitalizma, ostavljajući gledaocima mogućnost da sami povuku granicu između dokumentarnog i fiktivnog.

Synopsis

Branko Ilic was one of the leaders of the rebellion against the Milosevic regime in Serbia in the 1998-2000 period and the leader of the students’ movement Resistance. He was arrested and beaten dozens of times, and in 2000 he received MTV “Free your mind” award for his struggle on behalf of the Resistance. Exactly ten years after the October 5th revolution, Branko returns to Belgrade from voluntary exile in his native Arilje. He starts working as a bartender and temporarily moves in with Svaba, an old friend from the time of the protest. At that time, the famous advertising agency Svaba works for is hastily preparing a major campaign to promote consumer loans. This is an opportinity for Svaba and Branko to reminisce the 10th anniversary of the fall of Milosevic regime on October 5th right in front of the Serbian Parliament.

 

CRITICS:
“Milovanovic brings a contemporary sensibility marrying documentary and fiction, and offers a new
key to creating a convincing narrative in terms of this form.
Dimitrije Vojinov, Doba Nevinosti

“The Face of a Revolution“ reflect contemporary Serbia which has became a not so funny bankers
fantasy. In such a society, where each of us becomes a figure on the tycoon’s table, the revolution can
only exist as a horrible parody of postmodernism. But in a period between the old socialist system and
non-holiday spending, the old revolutionary dreams come true, but only in the form of advertising, PR,
media, political spectacle, catwalk, consumption, and that’s not what the revolutionary dreamers had in
mind (at least some of them).”
Rastko Ivanović, B92
“Otpor (Resistance) was defeated, and today, the honest holders of the revolution are full of guilt and
responsibility for this defeat. They are semi-conscious that they were manipulated from the beginning.
The current uprisings, during the final victory of capitalism in Serbia, are reduced to the indifference of
social networks and postmodern fraud, which are selling rebellion and revolution as a part of lifestyle in
the emergence of a particular class, or the nostalgic platitudes of neocommunism nonsenses.”
Ivan Velisavljevic, Popboks
