Film Review // by Stella Andrada Kasdovasili // On January 25th, 2019, Dusan Makavejev, one of the most prominent figures in Yugoslavian film history – and one of my favourite directors —died at the age of 86. The news of his death had somewhat of a reflective effect on me and I couldn’t help but think of his diverse work.
