When history has a different script from the one in your films, who wouldn't invent a country to fool themselves? The collapsing sets of Tito's Hollywood of the East take us on a journey through the rise and fall of the illusion called Yugoslavia. Exploring the ruins of the forgotten film sets and talking to directors, producers, policemen and Tito's projectionist about the state run film studios and Tito's personal love for cinema and it's stars, 'Cinema Komunisto' uses film clips to go back to the film when 'His story' became the official history.

Thanks to my beautiful girlfriend I found myself at The Magnificent Seven documentary film festival earlier this year in Belgrade. Cinema Komunisto was shown that night, which is a very strong documentary depicting Yugoslavian cinematography 1946-1991. Film contains numerous original footage, such as parts of interviews with Alfred Hitchcock (filmed in Belgrade in 1962), Orson Welles, Jul Briner etc. The thing I liked the most regarding this documentary is its narrative style and attention to the details. I was very pleased that many TV journalists were present, so that they can learn about making great documentaries such as Cinema Komunisto. Final note: If you're unfamiliar with Yugoslavia, the life of Tito, Yugoslav marshall, or the Balkans 1945-1991 maybe you will find this film not so interesting.
