Directed by Srđan Dragojević

Serbia 2013 115 mins. In Serbian

A small group of gay activists in Belgrade strikes an uneasy alliance with a war-hardened Serbian crime boss whose fiancée demands an extravagant wedding that only gay theater director Mirko and friends can provide. In exchange, macho Limun reluctantly agrees to provide security for their planned pride parade. Inspired by Belgrade’s tense 2010 gay pride parade and set shrewdly against the lingering xenophobia of the 1990s Balkan War, Dragojević’s surprisingly hilarious, deeply humane comedy—a Serbian box office smash—is a rollicking, poignant take on a vital human rights issue. “In addition to gay rights, the film affirms the future of the region’s states as mutually respecting, tolerant societies, united not by class consciousness or ethnic blood rivalries but by liberal values.”—The Boston Review.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
