‘Film acts as a valuable means for exposing the prejudices which circulate between Serbia and the West’ – Jolan Bogdan
Accompanied by the film savvy duo, William and Danny, the Potion Mixtures Production team travelled Serbia this summer for five weeks of on-location filming. They travelled by car to the corners of the country and put into focus the myriad of faces which make up the quilt of Serbian society today. Breaking from the traditional reportage of Serbia by the Western media, the team aim to provide a new frame for a new portrait of Serbia, a portrait painted by the words and worlds of Serbs today.
