Early Works – Exhibition celebrating 50 years of filmmaking by Želimir Žilnik
Žilnik, one of the leading figures of European, Yugoslav and Serbian cinema and a very prolific filmmaker, is quite possibly the most frequent guest at the Isola Cinema festival. Using photography and press reports, the exhibition sheds light on Žilnik’s early works.
On Saturday and Sunday, 8 and 9 June, at 5 pm, his Early Works (1969) will be shown at the gallery. A cult and classic film, this is a comical yet tragic story of a group of Marxist revolutionaries who hope to rouse their fellow citizens across rural Serbia from their socialist slumber.
