Kalenić, The Last Days of a City Market

Original title Kalenić, poslednji dani gradske pijace


The film captures the four seasons in life of a Belgrade city market, which lives its last days before it becomes modernised. The subtle humour and nostalgic approach brings about the traditional culture of Serbian open-air markets. Such market places are getting more modern every day, losing their previous meaning in the lives of the local community. Awards: Winner Best Camera and Best Editing – XX Belgrade Ethnological Film Festival (2011)
