Year

Duration
45’
Director
Boris Mitić

An intimate look at Gypsy refugees in a Belgrade suburb who make a living by transforming Citroën’s classic 2cv and Dyana cars into apocalyptic recycling vehicles, which they use to collect cardboard, bottles and scrap metal. These modern horses are much more efficient than the cart-pushing competition, but even more important – they also mean freedom, hope and style for their crafty owners. Even the car batteries are used as power generators in order to get some light, watch TV and recharge mobiles! Almost an alchemist’s dream come true! But the police doesn’t always find these strange vehicles funny…

Boris Mitić is a documentary filmaker from Belgrade, Serbia. Mitić worked as a professional journalist when he decided to buy a camera and film his first film Pretty Dyana on his own, using a home computer for production. He also directed UNMIK Titanik, a documentary about 100 people who couldn't leave their UN-protected building for over four years. His third film,Goodbye, how are you?, is a collage of Serbian sights and satirical aphorisms. Mitić encourages copyleft distribution of his films.
