Dear audience,

Before the screening, we will present the program of the fifth Vizantrop festival, which takes place from 23-26. November in the Culture Center Vlada Divljan.

The movie starts at 8:00 p.m., and after the discussion you can play various board games with us (Klask, Dixit, Kriziko, Don’t get angry man, Detective’s club, chess) and listen to Aleksandar Jevtić, who will play “driving and lifting ambient organic Black bass” for us.
