  • THE MYTH OF A REAL MAN by Lee Filipovski, producer: EAVE graduate Natasa Damnjanovic is in development. The project is about a Serbian family who hopes to immigrate to Canada. The father must decide between the duty to his homeland and the future of his family, in a pensive recollection of the 1999 bombing of Yugoslavia. As Vasiliye and Katarina Ostrogorsky wait for the response from the Canadian embassy on the status of their visa, their country comes under attack during the 1999. bombing of Yugoslavia. Their twelve-year old son Georgey, who was already grappling with the idea of moving to Canada, now watches his father as he puts on his uniform and answers the call to mobilization to defend a country which he was initially determined to leave. During Vasiliye's absence, the letter from the embassy arrives. As Vasiliye comes back on a day's leave from the military, his wife realizes that his focus has shifted. Instead of taking the chance to escape the country, Vasiliye chooses to return to the army. It will take a heavy air raid on their neighbourhood to make Vasiliye realize the gravity of the situation, and see the consequence of his decision. The project was selected for Montreal New Cinema Festival’s (FNC) international co-production market.
