Controversial Serbian Film KLIP Is Planned To Be Released Nationwide After Its Premiere At Fresh Film Fest
The Serbian film KLIP, newly awarded by Rotterdam International Film Festival, is planned to be released nationwide after its premiere at Fresh Film Fest on 30 August. The director Maja Miloš, who depicted a coming-of-age story of a young girl in contemporary Serbia, is coming to Prague to become a member of the Fresh Film Fest international jury.
"KLIP is a part of the festival section called Bright Future that focuses on first and second features that have already been awarded at some prestigious film festivals. We are glad that Maja accepted our invitation and that she is coming to Prague to confront her film with Czech audience and also give her opinion on films from the Confrontation competition," says festival director Radka Weiserová.
The film provokes with explicit sex scenes and at the same time captures a viewer's attention with its authenticity and its testimonial power. "The story of Jasna, the main character who tries to define her spot in the world and grow up, is on the verge of what we want to know about lives of teenagers today," adds Přemysl Martínek from the distribution company Artcam.
Although being awarded internationally, KLIP became the first film to be banned by the Russian Ministry of Culture from being distributed for its harmful content. Thus, Maja Miloš became another victim of the Putinian crusade against contemporary culture. Russian officials stress the fact that the main character - underage Jasna - experiments with both drugs and sex.
The film will be - for the very first time in the Czech Republic - released on the "day and date" basis in both cinemas and on the website TV Nova Voyo.cz. In the latter, the film will be available for streaming for free for its subscribers for the period of two weeks (from 30 August - 13 September).
