Kamengrad

  • Kamengrad is on its way ! The work for the construction of the “stone city”, on the shores of the Visegrad bridge (The bridge on the Drina), should start next week. We can see on this picture the first 3D pictures allowing to have an idea of what will look like the project. Some other views can be seen on the website : visegradturizam.com. The old adaptation project of Ivo Andrić's novel should finally see the light of day. According to the last news, Emir would now be likely to make a TV serie when the work will be finished (in 3-4 years). He declared : ”This city should be a symbol of pacifism. If its men have suffered and lost their lives because of their ethnicity or religious beliefs, this city should pacify all these conflicts through its cultural function. This city is the heart that has to beat a great idea to encourage eastern Bosnia as a symbol of peace. May it live in terms of culture and development of multiethnic life.” (source : glassrbije.org)
  • On 18 June 2011, Emir Kusturica received the Golden Camera at Art Film Festival of Trenčianske Teplice (Slovakia) for his “exceptional contribution to cinema”. At this occasion, he gave an new interview.
  • As an actor, Emir Kusturica has accepted the proposition of French director Jean-Pierre Mocky : we should see him soon in the film “Calomnies”, next to Alain Chabat, Quentin Tarantino, Jean-Luc Godard and Michel Gondry. ”All these independant directors have accepted to be actors, because the subject has catched them.” Mocky, who will shoot from 15 August to 1st October in Paris, also says : ”I didn't want to talk about Dominique Strauss-Kahn, but I wanted to talk of all the people that are destroyed by spreading false news on them. In these cases, we don't kill, like with the Mafia, but we deprecate them to empeach them to talk.” (Source : lefigaro.fr)
