Curfew in the beginning of the corona period was quite severe in many of the countries of the Balkans. What was possible to do and what not? This charming yet serious film brings snippets of lives under curfew of various people through the lenses of their own mobile phones. International Premiere


A compilation of videos, shot by random people from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and North Macedonia, masterfully put together by a young director Adi Selimovic, a final year student at the Academy of Performing Arts in Sarajevo. Having submitted a call to everyone interested in filming their lives during curfew, he received 60 videos depicting people’s new realities in the middle of the epidemic from which he put together this short, engaging film.
