Described as “sharp proverbs with a twist”, satirical aphorisms are the best antidote to life Serbia has to offer. They appear everywhere – in booklets, newspapers, slang, graffiti, street protests, screenplay lines. Their authors – ordinary people with an exceptional talent for observation and wordplays. Their consumers – an otherwise dejected general public. Their goal – demystifying commentary, empowering subversion, intellectual consolation. Why shouldn’t we be proud of our past when each new day is worse than the previous one?
Using creative narration and satirical documentary footage, this film will introduce you to the uplifting world of Serbian satirical aphorisms and will make you rediscover the panache of images through the power of words - and vice versa.
