"The Making of the Youth in Cinema: Yugoslav, Serbian and Croatian Practices"
My research is based on a diachronic comparison between Yugoslav socialist 'youth films' made in the period between 1960 and 1980, and 'youth films' that have been made in Serbia and Croatia from 2000 onward. It is primarily focused on analysing the way youth is represented in two different contexts (socialist and post-socialist). While thriving in the earlier period, the youth became a blind spot in the latter; it, thus, changed from a recognised and valued participant in the social progress ('youth labour brigades') to the indicator of the social crisis ('problematic youth,' 'brain drain'). I am interested to see the way youth as a symbolic (represented) and social (politically addressed) formation is being re-shaped historically.
