Celluloid building sites of socialist Yugoslavia: Cinematographic fiction and unfinished modernisations

This video was recorded at MAO Unfinished Modernisations: between Utopia and Pragmatism, Ljubljana 2012. Despite all of the difficulties, the new Yugoslav state apparatus recognized the particular suitability of the film industry for the affirmation of new social relations. "Our great building site of celluloid curiosity is not far behind in these years; nor in enthusiasm, nor in the effects of all those non-transparent polygons, where a new world is built from the ash, from new ideology, from a new personal and common destiny." The film will soon be treated as a new socialist art, founded on the principles of "national realism". Contemporary social reality through the movie is not presented as it is, but such as should be made in accordance with (optimistic) expectations.
