When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism by Corneliu Porumboiu

Running under the title “Socialism – Utopia Revisited”, this year’s Beyond Belonging section looks at post-communist blueprints for identity, at the dark side of neo-liberal social orders, and the impoverishment of large sectors of the population. In this section will screen four Balkan documentaries. The Bulgarian The Last Black Sea Pirates by Svetoslav Stoyanov, the Serbian Yugoslavia, How Ideology Moved our Collective Body by Marta Popivoda, the Croatian Married to The Swiss Franc by Arsen Oremovic and the multi-awarded Slovak Republic, Czech Republic and Croatian co-production Velvet Terrorists by Pavol Pekarcik, Ivan Ostrochovsky and Peter Kerekes

The same section also runs a short film programme called “(Post) Socialism Revisited”. This programme surveys film and video work of the past five years of Alternative Film/Video Belgrade, dealing with the (post-)socialist space and living conditions. The compilation was curated by Greg de Cuir, selector and programmer for Alternative Film/Video Belgrade, Europe΄s oldest festival of avant-garde film and video art. Out of the eight films in total, six come from the Balkan Region.

Finally the Romanian documentary The Curse of the Hedgehog by Dumitru Burdala (2005, 93min) will screen in the Specials section, while the same category will present a selection of eight short films from The National Film Archive of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
