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.Written by
I was born in SFRJ and it fell apart when I was still little. I am really proud and sad in same time on all the things that we had in that imperfect country. It is realistic story of that time with a lot significant names speaking about the way things in movie making was done in Yugoslavia. The director made a really good story and made us wonder what happened with all this? Thank you for reminding us on this part of history, because propaganda is making us believe that it was all nothing and what now is happening is progress. I am happy watching Bata Zivojinovic, a true legend of movie, Veljko Bulajic and all other people speaking about a great nation and great history.
