About: Documentary on Jugonostalgia

May 5, 2010

The documentary “Hej Sloveni! YU-Nostalgia as phenomenon of everyday life” (working titel) asks for the continued existence of a Yugoslav identity after the dissolution of the country of Yugoslavia and for the desires and projections connected with. In addition, it asks for the difficult process of the redefinition of identities in the course of transition. In the focus is the phenomenon of Jugonostalgija (YU-Nostalgia) – the longing to the former Yugoslavia. What are the different attitudes to that, what are the motifs of YU-nostalgia and anti-YU-nostalgia? How do various cities, regions, generations, men and women memorize a state  that imploded two decades ago?

The documentary has been produced by a team consisting of Aleksandra Vedernjak, Josefina Bajer and Daniela Mehler within the scope of the association „SEE.ID – in Dialoge with South-Eastern Europe“. The production was supported by the Vice Rectorate for International Relations at Karl-Franzens-University of Graz and by the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung Germany. The cutting and editing process is done by Branka Pavlović. The shooting was predominantly done in the centers of former Yugoslavia (Ljubljana, Zagreb, Sarajevo and Belgrade) but is also reflecting impressions from the diaspora and other places of nostalgia.
