Mladen Kovacevic / Feature Documentary / Serbia, Qatar / 90 min / Original Language: Serbian / Interests: Thriller, Creative Documentary


Smallpox is the deadliest disease in human history, and its eradication is one of the greatest achievements of our civilization. In a story that united the entire world and never felt as relevant as it is today, the final outbreak in Europe during the 1972 Yugoslavian epidemic was one of its most inspiring chapters.

About the Director

Mladen Kovačević’s poetic approach is rooted in the simplicity of realism. His films explore various styles with idiosyncratic dramatic structures and the unconventional approach to naturalistic aesthetics. Premiering in Nyon and Rotterdam, his films travelled festivals, were broadcasted, and awarded internationally. A three-time Grand Prix winner at Beldocs, his other awards include a Spirit Award at Brooklyn FF and Best Doc Feature at AcampaDoc Panama (‘Unplugged’, 2013); Special Jury Mentions at Visions du Réel and ZagrebDox and Best Documentary Award at Ibiza Cine Fest (‘4 Years in 10 Minutes’, 2018); The Heart of Sarajevo for Best Documentary at Sarajevo Film Festival and FIPRESCI Award at Flahertiana (‘Merry Christmas, Yiwu’, 2020). The Institute of Documentary Film has included Kovačević’s ‘Wall of Death and All That’ in their 20th-anniversary selection of the 20 films showing many faces of Central and Eastern European documentaries. Horopter Film Production produces his films.
