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.

This is not a documentary about Yugoslavian cinema
Just to shed some light what this documentary is, and what it is not. This is a documentary about one of the studios in ex-Yugoslavia, "Avala" Film, Belgrade, Serbia. Mostly about production of partisan movies and President Tito's affinity to those movies and cinematography in general. Documentary material in this movie has been recycled from dozens of other documentaries seen many times on ex-Yugoslavian TV stations. For me, watching this was a waste of time because there was no new documentary material presented, but I have no doubt that foreign viewers could find it interesting.
So, this is not a documentary about Yugoslavian cinematography, like some people are trying to present.
Each republic in ex-Yugoslavia (6 of them) had its own studios and movie production plus independent movie studios. More information about Yugoslavian cinema and studios can be found on wiki page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Yugoslav_films
