Moški (Miki Manojlović) ponudi inženirju (Nebojša Glogovac) 30.000 dolarjev za umor. S tem denarjem bi slednji lahko plačal sinovo operacijo. / A man offers an engineer $30,000 to commit a murder, enough money to pay for surgery for the latter’s son.

Klopka je moderni film noir, ki prikazuje pravi obraz srbske (vzhodnoevropske) družbe v tranziciji. Ta zgodba bi se lahko zgodila tudi vam. Film govori o običajnem človeku, ki je prisiljen v izbiro med življenjem in smrtjo svojega otroka. Film prikazuje Srbijo po Miloševiću, kjer sicer ni več vojne, je pa moralna in eksistencialna puščava, o tranziciji v Srbiji, kjer človeško življenje ni vredno veliko, o normalnem življenju, ki se zdi nedosegljivo.

The Trap is a modern film noir reflecting the true face of Serbian (Eastern European) ‘society in transition.’ It’s a story that could happen to you. It is a film about an ordinary man, who is forced to choose between life and death of his own child. The Trap is a film about post-Milošević Serbia, in which there is no more war, but there is moral and existential desert, about Serbia in transition, in which human life still isn’t worth a lot, about normal life which still seems unreachable.

Osebna stiska osamljene vdove, ki potihem načrtuje svojo smrt, je kljub kafkovski resnobnosti prikazana z dobro mero značilnega balkanskega črnega humorja. / A woman plans to commit suicide when her family’s problems become overwhelming.

Jelena je bolj ali manj že obupala nad življenjem. Vdova srednjih let se kljub hčerama in tašči, s katerimi si deli majhno stanovanje, počuti osamljeno in odvečno. Ob obletnici moževe smrti skrivaj načrtuje samomor in si v ta namen priskrbi pištolo, uredi življenjsko zavarovanje in celo naroči napis na nagrobniku. A bolj ko se približuje ta usodni dan, bolj ji postaja jasno, da je v svetu depresivne tranzicije, v katerem se je znašla, umreti morda še bolj zapleteno kot živeti.

Jelena has had enough of life. Her husband died a year ago, and she feels tired and lonely – in spite of her two daughters and her mother-in-law who all share her flat. She has decided that on the anniversary of her husband’s death she will commit suicide. She has a pistol ready for the job. She has taken out her life insurance policy and got a mason to put her portrait photograph on her gravestone. Gradually, this quiet, humble woman begins to realise that nothing’s simple in a country that’s constantly swinging back and forth between torment and transition.

Mila Turajlić skozi zgodbo o razlaščenem stanovanju svoje mame, ki je bila rojena takoj po vojni, opiše zgodbo nekega časa in prostora. / For Serbian filmmaker Mila Turajlić, a locked door in her mother’s apartment in Belgrade provides the gateway to both her remarkable family history and her country’s tumultuous political inheritance.

Staro meščansko stanovanje v središču Beograda je bilo po drugi svetovni vojni, ob nacionalizaciji, razdeljeno na dva dela. Dvoje vrat je zapečatenih, na tej strani, kjer zdaj živi sedemdesetletna Srbijanka Turajlić, stoji pred njimi kavč, na drugi strani so omare njene sosede, ki se v letih po razpadu Jugoslavije ni odselila. Mila Turajlić skozi zgodbo o razlaščenem stanovanju svoje mame, ki je bila rojena takoj po vojni, opiše zgodbo nekega časa in prostora, komunizem, ki Srbijanki kot univerzitetni profesorici ni bil naklonjen, obdobje razpada skupne države, dviga srbskega nacionalizma, Miloševića, revolucijo leta 2000 in ponovni dvig nacionalizma med volitvami leta 2015, ko je srbski narod izglasoval vzpon nekdanjega Miloševićevega ministra za informiranje.

A locked door in an apartment in Belgrade, which has not been opened for more than 65 years, drives the desire to explore what comes after a democratic revolution. Faced with the symbol of how the political becomes the personal, the chronicle of a family in Serbia becomes a portrait of choices one makes, from struggling against repression to dealing with disillusion under transition.

5. april 1941 nekje v Srbiji. Skupina ljudi sede na avtobus proti Beogradu. Odpravijo se na potovanje, ki jim bo spremenilo življenje. / It’s April 5, 1941, somewhere in Serbia. A group of people go on a bus to Belgrade, on a journey that will change their lives forever.

To grenkosladko komedijo so izdali leta 1980 kot ‘Ko to tamo peva’. Smo v letu 1941: poln avtobus potuje po kozjih stezah Jugoslavije. Publika spoznava in vzljubi potnike: ljubimce, politike, ekscentrike, ki jih igrajo znani jugoslovanski igralci. Genialno vzdušje filma pretrese nacistična bomba, ki zadane avtobus. Preživita samo ciganska glasbenika.

The time is 1941: a crowded bus travels over unpaved Yugoslavian terrain. In the manner of Stagecoach, the audience comes to know and grow fond of the various passengers: the lovers, the politician, the eccentrics, etc (each character is played by a well-known Yugoslav movie personality). The film’s genial mood is unexpectedly shattered when a Nazi bomb scores a direct hit on the bus. The only surviving passengers are a pair of travelling gypsy musicians.

Nedolžen spust s kanujem po reki Kolpi se za tri študentke spremeni v nepozabno pustolovščino. / A canoe trip down the river Kolpa becomes a journey of discovery for three female students.

Tri prijateljice, študentke Alja, Žana in Simona se med počitnicami odločijo za spust s kanuji po mejni reki Kolpi. Njihov spust skrivoma opazuje varuh meje, zadrti lokalni politik, ki se čuti poklican, da kanjon reke Kolpe obvaruje pred vsem kar je drugačno in svobodno. Kar dekleta vsekakor so. Predvsem Alja in Žana sta na videz neobremenjeni z ustaljenimi vzorci obnašanja, neustrašni in precej nesramni, medtem ko je Simona nežna, čutna in, kot se izkaže na koncu, najbolj pogumna članica odprave. Tri mladenke spusta po Kolpi ne bodo pozabile do konca svojih dni. Na videz brezskrbna pustolovščina jih bo zaznamovala za vekomaj.

For their summer holidays, three students Alja, Žana and Simona, decide to take a canoe trip down the Kolpa river, the river which divides Slovenia from Croatia. They are unaware that they are being watched by the Guardian of the Frontier, a conservative local politician, the self-styled defender of traditional Slovenian values, who is quite possible prepared to kill those who transgress. As the girls float deeper into the woods, cracks develop in the three girls’ relationship. Is there more than friendship between Alja and Žana? Does Simona harbour a secret sympathy for the Guardian and what he stands for? With nowhere to turn, the three girls must decide: what is a border crossing and what is just an imaginary line?

Dva jezika. Dva zaljubljenca. Ena skrivnost. / Two languages. Two lovers. One secret.

Zaradi tehničnih težav letalo na poti z Danske v Grčijo pristane na slovenskem letališču. Med potniki je Iben, tiha mlada lepotica. Med prevozom potnikov v ljubljanski hotel naveže stik s Tino, ki se med poletjem preživlja kot voznica minibusa. Iben si želi spoznati Ljubljano in Tina ji ustreže … Iskrena zgodba o dveh osebah, ki se spoznata v povsem neprimernem trenutku, a sta navkljub temu nekoliko srečnejši.

Due to a weather problem a plane from Denmark is forced to land at the Slovene airport. Amongst the passengers, being taken to a hotel in Ljubljana, is a quiet, beautiful young Danish girl Iben. This is how she meets Tina who drives a shuttle as a summer job. They both need each other, but are very careful because one of them is hiding a secret. They speak to each other in English and in their native languages. Only one of the two languages has the so-called dual, a special grammatical form used in expressions that involve just two subjects. The other language does not. Dual is an honest story about two people who meet precisely at the moment when they absolutely should not have – but they are nevertheless a bit happier because they did.

Concluding film of Ljubljana’s 33rd LGBT Film Festival.

Irena, Lahko Noč je ljubezenska zgodba, ki govori o nenavadni ljubezni med Ireno in Avguštinom Mavčcem iz Turnišča v Prekmurju. / Goodnight, Irene is an unusual love story between Irena and Avguštin Mavčec from village Turnišče in Prekmurje region.

Irena, lahko noč je na Mednarodnem festivalu dokumentarnega filma DOKUDOC 2017 prejel naziv DOKUDOC IZBRANI 2017.

Film bo predvajan v sodelovanju z DOKUDOC. 

Par je v devetdesetih, kmalu po poroki, doživel težko prometno nesrečo, v kateri je Irena utrpela hude možganske poškodbe in se ni več prebudila. Zdravniki so jo hoteli prepustiti usodi počasne smrti, Avguštin pa jo je vzel iz bolnice in zanjo nesebični skrbi še danes. Prvih 18 let je bil v tem popolnoma sam, zdaj mu pomagajo tri osebne asistentke. Pri svojih 40. letih se je po dolgoletni borbi z zdravstvenim sistemom odločil za študij prava. Pred Avguštinom je zdaj zaključni pravosodni izpit in iskanje službe, s katero bi lahko opravljal delo odvetnika za človekove pravice in dostojno skrbel za Ireno.

Imagine that you have a partner for life, which you love sincerely. One day you get involved into a terrible car crash; You both survive, but only you awake from coma and your partner does not; What would you do? Irena and Avguštin met in 1987. They fell in love and got married two years later. Soon after the that, Irena had a strange dream; she dreamt she was buried alive and woke up trapped in the coffin. Avguštin promised her that he would never let something like that to happen. Soon after, they were hit by a truck and their car was smashed. Avguštin completely recovered, but Irene never awake from coma. He started taking care of Irena 24/7. After 20 years, he went to study law. Now he has to pass the bar exams and find the job as a lawyer to be able to provide for them. The year 2017 is going to be decisive because the Slovenian government will either pass the law for handicapped person free personal assistants or abolish health care funds. So Avguštin’s hopes for the future are in stake.
