Description:
Mila Turajlić's film explores the moral standpoint of an individual who feels a responsibility to react to social change in times of crisis.

A locked door in an apartment in Belgrade, which has not been opened for more than 65 years, drives the desire to explore what comes after a democratic revolution. Faced with the symbol of how the political becomes the personal, the chronicle of a family in Serbia becomes a portrait of choices one makes, from struggling against repression to dealing with disillusion under transition.

"I want to speak of my country from a very personal angle, and from a very precise point of departure - the place where I live. The more I stare at the locked doors that I have been faced with all my life, the more I realise how much about Serbia can be understood by talking about divided spaces. The plot of the film grows like a spiral: a personal investigation into divided space unfolds a family chronicle which becomes an account of turbulent times that ends up portraying a story of a country." (Mila Turajlić)
