Hotel Jugoslavija

Synopsis

Erected in Novi Belgrade in 1969, the Hotel Jugoslavija was a mythical place. It was both a symbol and a witness to the various moments that shaped former Yugoslavia: From Tito to Milosevic; from Socialism toNationalism; from NATO’s bombings to corrupted economic liberalism.

Today it is still haunting Belgrade’s landscape, as a reflection of a Serbiansociety in search of new milestones.With this journey through the times and spaces of thebuilding, the director – of Yugoslavian origin by hismother but born and raised in Switzerland – exploresboth a collective unconscious and a part of his ownidentity.
