Yugoslavian Home Movies

I am close to finishing Yugoslavian Home Movies, the film resulting from my Belgrade residency last September. When I told the people at Academic Film Center my plans to use archived material they supplied me with some amazing footage ranging from the forty year period between the 1960's and the late 1990's. That footage includes Super 8 home movies of three generations of a family stretching the history of Yugoslavia, student rebellions of 1968, and local news footage documenting the break up of Yugoslavia.
