SynopsisThe film deals with the question of how ideology performed itself in public space through mass performances. The author collected and analyzed film and video footage from the period of Yugoslavia (1945–2000), focusing on state performances as well as counter-manifestations. Here, however, documentary images are not taken only as historical facts, but are instead reflected on by a voiceover which tells a story of Yugoslavia’s recent history, struggling with memory, media images, and personal experiences. The film thereby reconstructs how the social system changed from socialist Yugoslavia to neoliberal capitalist Serbia, and how the changes have been historicized through a theatre of history.
