Synopsis

Director's statement

My first feature film "THE AMBULANCE" was dedicated to Serbia's internal problems at the beginning of the millennium, marked by the collapse of Milosevic's totalitarianism and the beginnings of democracy.

In my second feature called "ENCLAVE" I want to deal with the "Kosovo phenomenon", the most painful issue of contemporary Serbian society and in the Balkans.

With this film I want to explore the essence of the Serbian/Albanian dispute, which resulted - ten years ago - in war, destruction and crimes. But I want to raise the following question: is coexistence still possible between these two communities in a reality marked by the presence of enclaves, isolated islands of Christian minority surrounded by a sea of Muslim majority?

My answer is crystal clear: hated based on fear of what's different and diverse still lingers between the two ethnic communities.

And fear is the absence of love...

That's why the hero in this story is a ten-year old boy who dares to do something unimaginable for both communities in Kosovo - Christian and Muslim: to gain a friend on the opposite side!

I want to make a film based on the eternal and edifying story about forgiveness and love.
