Another movie classic restored as part of the Vip Kinoteka

The digital version of the movie Balkanski Spijun (Balkan Spy), restored as part of the Vip Cinema Project, was premiered to Belgrade audiences at the Vlad Divljan Center for Culture.

After almost 40 years, the re-screening of Dusan Kovacevic’s legendary performance brought together a part of the film crew – Mira Banjac, Branka Petric, Bozidar Bot Nikolic, Milan Cac Mihajlovic, Slobodan Ivetic and Milenko Jeremic.

The premiere was attended by a number of guests from the cultural and media life, who were greeted by Jugoslav Pantelic, director of Yugoslav Cinematheque and Dejan Turk, general manager of Vip mobile.

“Balkan Spy, one of the most popular film creations in the region, directed by Dusan Kovacevic and Bozidar Nikolic, who was graced with the Golden Arena at the Pula Film Festival in 1984, will now have the audience to watch in top quality thanks to the digital restoration,” Jugoslav Pantelić is the director of the Yugoslav Cinematheque and added: “this film satire, in which unforgettable roles were performed by Danilo Bata Stojković, Mira Banjac, Sonja Savić, Zvonko Lepetić, portrays in a credible and humorous way the character of Ilia Čvorović as well as the archetype of the” Balkan of spies,” which makes this movie current.”

“Vip Cinema is a project that is constantly growing. Putting digitalization into the service of culture, we have so far restored 12 films, the last of which is the Balkan Spy. Using modern technologies, we have made this achievement accessible to new viewers so that future generations can enjoy the unforgettable scenes and replicas that we still retell today,” concluded Dejan Turk, CEO of Vip mobile and A1 Slovenia.

Dr Nele Karajlic and his band performed after the screening of the film and the evergreen hits brought the audience back to the time when the film was shot and revived the atmosphere of the 1980s.

The screening of the Balkan Spy continues the second cycle of the Vip Kinoteka project, and Belgrade audiences will have the opportunity to watch the digitally restored film at free screenings on October 3 at 6 pm and 8.30 pm at the Yugoslav Cinema Hall.

Tickets will be able at the Cinema Box Office at Uzun Mirkova 1. The number of seats is limited and the maximum number of tickets that can be downloaded is two per person.
