Serbian director presents film about Cuba at Golden Apricot

16:36, 13.07.2012 Region: Armenia Theme: Society, Culture

YEREVAN.- Serbian director Goran Radovanovic said he wants to shoot a film about Armenia.

The director is in Yerevan to present his With Fedel Whatever Happens documentary at the 9th Golden Apricot International Film Festival.

Talking to reporters on Friday he first of all noted presence of Mormons in Armenia.

“I didn’t know you have Mormons. Why do Armenians, having centuries-old Christian tradition, need Mormons. I would like to make a film about it,” he emphasized.

Radovanovic said his film is depicting the life of common Cubans in an ironical manner and is not aimed at solving political problems. The director stressed that his own communist past helped him ponder over the Cuban society.

In his documentary Serbian director tried to show what he calls “communism under palm trees” touching upon three main problems – limitation of movement, fear for system and huge difference between the declared values and reality.

“Anyway my film is not about politics, it is about life. I am not criticizing, I am only mocking,” he said.

Goran Radovanovic is a member of the European Film Academy.
