Chicken Elections by Radovanovic, Goran

By filming the lives of elderly Milena and her nephew, police officer Zoran, director Radovanovic depicts the contemporary society of the Serbian countryside. With the combination of festive black and white historical images, the result is a melancholic view of a small rural village on the brink of change, as the parliamentary elections of 2003 are approaching. Meanwhile, the lonesome Milena is trying to get used to a mobile phone.
