FILMOGRAPHY

BALKAN RHAPSODIES: 78 MEASURES OF WAR, 2008.

Ivan & Ivana (0+)

USA, 2011, colour, 80 min.
Director: Jeff Daniel Silva
After the Kosovo war devastates a young couple's homeland and their dreams for a normal life, they set out unexpectedly from the Balkans, along a wild journey to rebuild their lives anew in America. Arriving in California amidst the peak of a housing boom that would soon burst, the film reveals their trials and tribulations over five years of turbulent economic, political and personal tides to reveal an unorthodox depiction of the American immigrant experience.
