Film history

is history of power

of creating a history.

Tito Party

Get ready.

This is the story,

of one country,

that no longer exists.

Except on the film.

Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia

The cinematography

had priority importance,

within a scope of then Yugoslavia.

We were one of the leading

cinematographies in Europe.

Steva Petrovic

assistant director

Film town was built by

the state of Yugoslavia.

We had big chances.

Worked side by side

with renowned world directors,

we produced great world decors,

and the world great films.

Veljko Despotovic


What's the time?

Time of revolution.

I founded the Association

of Film Actors of Serbia,

and also the Association

of Film Actors of Yugoslavia.

It was wirtten on the door:

"If you don't think you are the best,

don't come in. "

Bata Zivojinovic

film actor

Today the film is much

different, than it was before.

The impact of the film was


Film was a powerful weapon

of propaganda and so on.

Gile Djuric

studio director

Every country and every government

enforces it's own themes.

It was like that. And it always will be.

That every power

promotes itself.

I think that formula of the film

is to be fair to the theme.

Fairness of the film can be

best seen by how long it lasts.

That is the first

and only law of the film.

Veljko Bulajic

film director

On a photograph is Tito,

the bandit leader.

Josip Broz Tito,

born in Kumrovec,

on 25th of May, 1892.

Comrade Tito, call his eagles to war.

Josip Broz Tito

Marshal of Yugoslavia.

Comrade president Tito,

I was your cinematography

projectionist, for 32 years.

I am grateful for everything.

It's wrong.

Leka Konstantinovic.

Tito's projectionist

Berlin is down!

Berlin kaputt!

Hitler kaputt!

Berlin is down.


Our victory.

The end of war.

May 1945

The year 1945 will stay

in remembrance.

Justice came,

for which we fought.

Everything will be gratious

in new Yugoslavia.

The whole country will be


Beginning of new


Comrades, the war is over.

But the revolution continues!

Our people's revolution!

Yugoslavia was in war

from 1941 till 1945.

The whole country was in ruins.

Belgrade was destroyed

three times by bombs.

In 1946 and 1947

230 km of railway was built.

All that was built by youth.

Of course, not only the youth.

For the first week we

exceeded the norm by 70 percent!

I was also there,

mainly as an organizer.

Steady! To the right!

Forward, march!

We slept in the barracks.

In order to demonstrate courage,

we slept on the boards.

We didn't want blankets nor paliasse.

We were like that.

We liked to work for our country.

Part of the middle class,

are skeptical about this feat of ours.

They can't understand

that our 5 socialist years

is like their 55.

If it is required my Comrades

we will work day and night.

Our country expects that from us.

Along with this struggle

on 1-May, 1947 in Belgrade.

The construction

of the film town started.

Vlasta Gavrik.


In 1951 it will have seven

modern studios and other objects.

It will represent adequate technical base,

for the realization of major

tasks of Yugoslavian cinema.

Central film studio, Avala film.

When I came to the film town,

it looked something like this paper.

A huge field.

That was the beggining

of our cinema.

When nobody knew how to

construct a film town.

The Engineer, uncle George will

explain to you about the assignment.

Hello, youngsters.

What can I tell you?

Do you see that hill? -Yes.

Let's go.

It began by plan
