Why do you produce documentaries? Do you see documentary cinema as an instrument of social and political change?

How do you achieve and maintain work-life balance and foster overall well-being?
It kind of balance itself on the way. It's like sailing down the river, on the raft, that's getting bigger year by year. It looks like a boat right now.

Where do you find audiences for your films?
I tend not to think about the audience while making the film. It can be a big distraction. The filmmaker’s vision is the one to be found, understand and followed. The audience will come naturally.

What projects do you have underway (including fiction films and other projects)?
The hottest thing we're working on is feature fiction Termites, produced by Nevena Savić and myself. A family drama dealing with contemporary problem of family expansion and general dissatisfaction with one's own life- written and directed by myself. We have been co-financed by Film Center Serbia, late 2023, and we're now in search for possible partners.
