Serbian director Mila Turajlic explores the golden age and excess of Yugoslavian cinema during the leadership of revolutionary leader and film fanatic Josip Broz Tito.Speaking with Leka (Aleksandar) Konstatinovic, the projectionist who showed Tito a film every teatime for 32 years, the documentary explores how the Marshall ploughed vast amounts of state money into countless films as well as the world class studios he built in the hills above Belgrade.During these years, Yugoslavia welcomed stars including Sophia Loren and Orson Welles, while Richard Burton starred as Tito himself in the statesman's biopic. Backed by Tito, who approved the majority of film scripts himself, directors had free rein to destroy real bridges and blow up the military's tanks. They could also draw their cast from the country's national army with some soldiers serving their entire tour duty as extras.Featuring the bittersweet memories of those involved in Tito's ambitious plans, this documentary explores many of the movies made during that time, including the nation's most expensive film, The Battle of Neretva.
