REVOLUTION ETERNAL

PERSONAL DOCUMENTARY PORTRAIT
FILMED 2010 / EDITED 2016
An unbuilt Museum of Revolution in Belgrade, Serbia becomes a site of investigation into the true nature of revolution, and brings the myth of a forgotten country back to life. The history of Yugoslavia is told through the lens of Slobodan Maldini, a Serbian architect obsessed with the building as a metaphor for national history, and the arc of his own life. Alongside Maldini’s reflections, Revolution Eternal captures the growth of a personal relationship between myself and a Roma man named Stanisha, who invites me to film the museum’s squatted basement. Throughout the film, this unexpected meeting ground serves as a reminder that the foundation of coexistence is the immaterial power of human connection.
