Evening of March 31st at CIVA

 

6.30 pm - Anplagd - Film from Serbia, directed by Mladen Kovacevic

With the right technology, a leaf from a tree can sound like a full-fledged musical instrument. We learn this in the amusing and beautiful film about a small Serbian village, which throws all its love on what must be the most primitive instrument ever which invites us to rediscover nature.

8pm - Roma Quixote - Film from Bulgaria, directed by Nakova Petya et Pehlivanova Nina

Roma Quixote is a poetical tale about a Roma neighborhood. One part of the neighborhood is urbanized, the other part is a true ghetto, while the main square with shops and cafes is in the middle. There are comical contrasts and inevitable similarities between them. For more information, click here.
