A SHORT DOCUMENTARY BY NIKOLA ILIĆ
KANTON JUGOSLAWIEN (Little Yugoslavia) I Doc I 2013/16min.
This is the multi-faceted portrait of a motley group of people from ex-Yugoslavia who emigrated to Switzerland over the last 40 years. But have they truly arrived? Much as they might praise and appreciate the advantages of living in Switzerland, they have kept their traditions of old and live a life of yearning and nostalgia in their own separate canton, the ‘Canton of Yugoslavia’.
An emotional portrait of former Yugoslavs who since the 60’s came to Switzerland. But did they really arrived? Beside all of the benefits they praise in Switzerland, they live in ‘Canton of Yugoslavia’ holding on to their traditions and nostalgia.
