Dragoslava has four TV sets, three grandchildren, two best friends, and a husband with whom she fights over a remote control. She has lived in five countries without ever moving from her flat in a small borderline town. The media and politics creep into the family intimacy but she reflects about it with humor and determination. For the kids, she invents real life stories instead of fairy tales and keeps her desire to see a future of hope. Our every single gesture, from getting up in the morning onward, is an act of responsibility which starts to change the world.
After graduating in Archaeology and Art History from the Catholic University in Louvain, Belgium, studied Film Anthropology at Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, Paris, and Ethnographic Film with Jean Rouch. In parallel, she studied Drama at Ecole Internationale de Thêatre Jacque Lecoq in Paris. She worked as a first director’s assistant to the famous Serbian film director Želimir Žilnik. Biljana is the author of several video installations, short, feature and documentary films, video works and performances. In 2010 she founded an independent film production Wake Up Films, in Novi Sad, Serbia. Currently she also works as the programme curator for Free Zone Film Festival in Belgrade.
