|Teona Strugar Mitevska
Born in Skopje, Macedonia in 1974, she now lives there and in Brussels. She had her first experience in film as a child actor and later took a degree in graphic design and studied film at the Tisch School of the Arts in New York. Her short film Veta screened in the Panorama, she returned to the Berlinale once again with her feature film Jas sum od Titov Veles (I am from Titov Veles) which was screened at over 80 festivals around the world and won more than 20 awards worldwide
In April 2012 the bodies of several Macedonian teenagers were found near a lake outside Skopje. Theirs is a story of a lost generation damaged by the social upheaval of the Balkans. Milan, Petar, Cvetan, Rape, Ace and Vladan are all teenagers just like any others. Their lives are characterised by dysfunctional families, money worries and their hopes for a better future. They decide to go on a fishing expedition. During the next 24 hours together, they get to know each other better and begin to let their masks drop. They toy with each other’s emotions, dance about to old pop songs, clash with some Albanians, put their sexual magnetism to the test – and search for a way to vent their lust for life in a frustrating society.
