Mini Bio (1)

The son of actors Rade Markovic and Olivera Markovic, between 1965 and 1970 he studied film directing in Prague and then started working for television, directing documentaries and about fifty tv movies. His first theatrical feature was the critically acclaimed and financially successful Special Education (1977). Although his followup film was also extremely successful, most of the critics panned it: it would take more than ten years before it was recognized as a classic. Most of his following features have been screened in various Yugoslavian and international festivals. Besides making movies, Markovic also staged two plays and wrote three more. Since 1979 he's been teaching film directing in Belgrade's Dramatic Arts faculty.
