IVANA THE TERRIBLE New Auteurs

IVANA THE TERRIBLE

North American Premiere

Talent attending: Catalin Cristutiu (Editor), Ivana Mladenovic (Director)

Ivana Mladenović’s charming sophomore feature enlists former lovers, family members and friends to portray semi-fictionalized versions of themselves. As herself, Mladenović is a pleasure to watch hurl insults at her loved ones. Ivana has been living and working in Romania, on the other side of the Danube, but she returns to her hometown of Kladovo, Serbia to recover from a mysterious, undiagnosed illness. While still processing feelings for her ex, she becomes the source of town gossip when seen with a much younger man. In vacillating between these two complicated relationships, her health and ambitions are neglected. Based on actual events, this acerbic tragicomedy touches on nervous breakdowns, hitting creative walls and feeling both at home and apart in different countries. –Malin Kan
