The Liberation of Skopje at Cleveland Film Festival

Film “The Liberation of Skopje”, directed by Danilo and Rade Serbedzija, will take part at the Cleveland International Film Festival, held 29 March-9 April.


The film, co-produced by Macedonia, Croatia and Finland, will compete with over 400 features, said “Partizans” productions.

The occupation and liberation of what is now Macedonia’s capital, Skopje, during World War II is seen through the eyes of eight-year-old Zoran. The Red Army’s liberation from German and Bulgarian occupation of what was then a provincial Yugoslav city is the story of the cruelty of war, poverty and suffering in which young Zoran witnesses his Jewish friend Renata Rossman and her family being taken away to a concentration camp but also knows his Uncle Gjorgija is a partisan battling the Nazis.

“The Liberation of Skopje” cast includes David Todosovski, Rade Serbedzija, Silvija Stojanovska, Lucija Serbedzija, Mikko Nousiainen etc.
