Mila Turajlic / Feature Documentary / Serbia, France, Qatar / 2017 / 100 min / Colour and B&W / Original Language: Serbian


A door locked for 70 years in a house haunted by history. The story of an apartment in Belgrade turns a family chronicle into a portrait of a country in political turmoil. As the filmmaker seeks answers from her activist mother, their intimate conversation questions the responsibility of each generation to fight for their future.
