A Little Village Performance



Krsto Papić – JU 1972 — 18 Min. – Serbokroatisch — 35mm auf DigiBeta

R+B: Krsto Papić K: Ivica Rajković — P: Zagreb Film






A documentary of a village pop-music-festival-cum-beauty-contest. Transferred from urban to rural context, this event turns into a caricature of a sort, revealing the impact of mass media on parochial values.


Krsto Papić (Vučedol, Montenegro, 1933 - Zagreb, 2013), internationally acclaimed Croatian film director and screenwriter, and one of the main representatives of Yugoslav author's cinema, graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb. After assisting to other directors, he made his directing debut in 1965 with an episode in the omnibus „Ključˮ, followed by his first feature film „Iluzijaˮ (1967). Since the late 1960s and through the early 1970s he made in alternation his crucial politically engaged feature films and his most important socially committed documentaries.
