THE WAY OF THE EAST now in post-production
In post-production February 2017
- THE WAY OF THE EAST by Katarina Mutic, producer: EAVE graduate Milan Stojanovic is in post-production. The documentary is about Desanka, a fortune-teller. How does the day pass for a person like her? How does her family live with her? And does she solve her own problems with the same ease as others people's problems? We might think that this is just easy money, but rarely do we entertain the fact that these fortune-tellers, witches or whatever we call them, have a life, a home, a family… Milan Stojanović is producing through Serbia’s Sense Production in co-production with the Faculty of Dramatic Arts. The film benefitted from postproduction support from Film Center Serbia. “The Way of the East started off as an exam task for Katarina, but the story and Katarina’s work with the characters surpassed that framework by far, bringing extraordinary insight into the everyday life of an (extra)ordinary family in a remote Serbian village,” Stojanović said. Shooting took place from June 2014 to August 2015 on location in East Serbia. No distributor or sales agent is attached to the project yet. TV rights haven’t been bought yet and the premiere date has yet to be determined.
