Film + TV

White, White World (Beli, Beli Svet)

When: Mon., April 25, 7 p.m. 2016

Set in the dying city of Bor, a mining town in Serbia’s version of the Rust Belt, Novković’s film has been likened to a modern Greek tragedy in which “characters sing, but never dance.” In a post-industrial landscape, a Balkan tango of love and death develops, as petty thieves, abandoned lovers, and other peripheral characters tossed aside by the post-socialist transition connect in the only thing they still possess: a passionate, inalienable desire for life itself. In Serbian with English subtitles. Contains mature content, including drug usage, nudity, and strong language. Producer Milena Trobozic Garfield is scheduled to be present. (Digital.)
