SERBIAN EPICS + Dir. Q&A

In June & July don't miss a rare opportunity to see the director's early award-winning non-fiction films and his later fiction work inspired by his experience with docs.
Dir: Pawel Pawlikowski
United Kingdom / 1992 / 50mins

Pawel's highly original and most formally constructed film "Serbian Epics" (1992) was made at the height of the Bosnian war, using the siege of Sarayevo as its central image. It includes close up footage of Bosnian Serb politician Radovan Karadzic and General Ratko Mladic, both later wanted by the international court of justice for war crimes. This multi-layered, ironic, imagistic, at times almost hypnotic study of myth-making and murder aroused a storm of controversy, including questions in the house of commons, at the time of its broadcast.

Pawel Pawlikowski will be in conversation with Nick James, Editor of Sight & Sound after the screening of Serbian Epics.
