A mysterious locked door in a Belgrade apartment becomes a symbol of Serbia’s divisive history in this top prize winner at Amsterdam’s International Documentary Film Festival.

When filmmaker Mila Turajlić’s mother, Srbijanka, was a child, her family’s apartment in Belgrade was physically divided by the communist regime to accommodate multiple families. A door to the ‘other side’ remained permanently locked: a reminder of the past, and a visual metaphor of Serbia’s unknown or unexpressed history. Srbijanka is an outspoken academic and politician – making for highly entertaining dinner parties. Her filmmaker daughter cleverly uses her activist mother’s discussions, family history and unique home, along with archival photographs and footage, to explore her country’s troubled past. Along the way, Mila and her mother question each generation’s responsibility to Serbia’s wellbeing, in this deeply personal and political documentary.

Accessible, informative and wryly humorous, the film uses Srbijanka's tastefully decorated residence as a prism through which to view the woman, her turbulent times and the complicated history of the former Yugoslavia. – Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter

It's a vivid and nuanced portrait of a country too often judged from the outside, still divided by what happened, and conscious of the fact that there can be no easy solutions. – Elena Lazic, Seventh Row
