2 Project Signs by the Roadside The signs we leave after us will not escape the destiny of everything human - transience and oblivion. They may never be noticed at all and perhaps no one will understand them. But still, they are necessary, just as it is natural and necessary that we should open our hearts and communicate with others. If these small obscure signs do not save us from disorientation and all kinds of trials, they can at least make them easier, and help us in so far as they convince us that, in everything we do, we are not alone, nor the first, nor unique...

Dedicated to the helmers thesping parents and partially filmed in the bombed ruins of Stanics first elementary school, The Tour crackles with the passion of committed filmmakers delivering an of-the-moment message with showmens feel for edgy entertainment... Eddie Cockrell, The Tour Variety,

11 references references On the contrary to the fact that the majority of recognized directors whose careers are descending, Goran Marković made his best film and one of the best Serbian since the beginning of the nineties... Guiding his unhappy and confused characters from one danger to another, Goran Marković has managed to preserve style of ironic, bitter comedy till the end... All of this you should see with your own eyes! Milan Vlajčić, The theater of war and the illusion, Blic,

12 While the absentminded doctor countlessly washes his bloody hands, Marković summarizes not only the absurdity and terrible tragedy of one time, but all the nonsense of the war in general... Chaotic atmosphere and all the cruelty of war is quite convincingly reconstructed at all levels and all technical elements in this film are well coordinated. After all, Marković has gathered together confirmed associates... No doubt: Goran Marković made a very good movie...While the absentminded doctor countlessly washes his bloody hands, Marković summarizes not only the absurdity and terrible tragedy of one time, but all the nonsense of the war in general...

13 SOME OTHER STORIES – THE SERBIAN STORY Film project "Some other stories" was launched five years ago and it includes producers and young filmmakers from all over former Yugoslavia. The project is based on the belief that it is necessary and possible to reanimate the cultural space of former Yugoslavia and the new basis, who would not be burdened by the recent conflicts. In omnibus form, the project brings together five stories that reflect the sensibility of the young generation, their dilemmas, doubts, hopes, relationships towards the actual problems that young people face in their communities today. The creative leader of this project SEE Film Pro recruited five young directors from Belgrade, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Sarajevo and Skopje, with an aim that each write and direct one story - a segment in the omnibus.

14 Each story has a thematic connection - everyday problems of people residing in the former Yugoslav republics. Considering that all directors are women, the stories are focused on the problems of women, mostly about motherhood and birth. Directors which did this omnibus are Ana Maria Rossi (Belgrade, Serbia), Ivona Juka (Zagreb, Croatia), Hanna A. W. Slak (Ljubljana, Slovenia), Maria Džidževa (Skopje, Macedonia) and Ines Tanović (Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina). references references

17 Tihomir Stanić, who played the character of Ivo Andrić many times in his career, would also be cast in this TV series. Select from the review of monodrama The Bridge on the Drina: "Narration, as almost forgotten form of theater and social communications, is affirmed again in our cultural life through this project. Stanić convincingly leads us through this exciting story of Mehmed Pasha Sokolović, his bridge and suffering, consistently respecting Andrićs sentences. The fact is that Stanićs appearance on the scene reminiscent of Ivo Andrić..." Project Signs by the Roadside
