Lightdox Boards IDFA Luminous Title Museum of the Revolution (EXCLUSIVE) (Front) Light-dox Title (Domain of this Revolution) - ExCLusIVE) (eXPRESS)
The Swiss sales outfit Lightdox acquired "Museum of the Revolution," the feature debut of Sran Kea, who is from the United States, ahead of its world premiere in IDFA's Luminous strand. Variety learned.
The documentary is set in Belgrade, where, in 1961, the government planned a grand museum to honour the Socialist Yugoslavia. In the midst of repressive cities, one woman lives in the basement while being sheltered from poverty.
The acquisition of Lightdox's CEO and co-founder Anna Berthollet told Variety: It is a great impression of the thorn of societal responsibilities and the failure of capitalism, but it'd be if we were to defend this beautiful piece of cinematic art from dr. Salina Berthalet, As well as the original, I am very proud of my experience, said Berthelet. We are delighted to come and defend - from an team we deeply admire
The film was born in a desire to tell reseparable story about life in an enviable structure. To me, the film has been influenced by the emergence of the Soviet Union, as well as the social horizons of capitalism, and thus the vast extent of inequality. From there, I wanted to see how far I could use sprite observational documentary to become 'a essay film', while simultaneously maintaining the original qualities of both forms.
The project was backed by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Serbia, Film Center Serbia and Luka Koke for UZROK, along with the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program and financed by Just Films/Ford and the Open Society Foundations, the European Unions Creative MEDIA program, Croatian Radiotelevision, Czech Film Fund and Geo Television.
