BELGRADE, February 28. /ITAR-TASS/. Slobodan Skerlic’s film “The Gun Was Hot” opened the 42nd International Fest Film Festival in the Serb capital Belgrade on Friday. The work on tht film lasted for three years.
The film tells a dramatic story of a Serb teenager who lost parents in the war-torn Bosnia and Herzegovina in the first half of the 1990s. According to Skerlic, the story of a childhood under threat was the film’s central theme rather than the reconstruction of historical events in Sarajevo in the winter of 1992-1993.
“This film shows that there are humans and villains in all nations,” the film director said. The film will start running in Serbia this autumn.
