A Serbian Film is one of those movies that everyone has heard of, even if they haven’t seen it. In the 7 years since the shockingly transgressive film’s release, it’s maintained its reputation as the most controversial film of the 21st Century—or perhaps ever. We recently announced that a Director’s Cut is in the works, courtesy of the folks at Unearthed Films. Today, we’re hearing via Nerdly that Unearthed is also planning a definitive retrospective: A Serbian Documentary.
Now in production from Unearthed Films and Contra Films comes A Serbian Documentary, which will take an exclusive look at “SRPSKI FILM” aka A Serbian Film and the worldwide reactions of one of the most talked about, controversial films of the last decade – a film which has been banned, censored, and has even had legal charges brought against film festival promoters just for showing it!
Director Stephen Biro and Jason Koch are co-directing along with Srdjan Spasojevic producing alongside Unearthed Films, Contra Films and Dire Wit Films. With over 60 hours of behind the scenes footage that has never been seen before, A Serbian Documentary will give the fans, the ultimate exploration of one of the most talked about films in horror history.
This in-depth documentary will have exclusive interviews with the actors, crew members, writers and of course, Sdjan Spasojevic, Director of A Serbian Film; celebrity interviews of what they thought while watching this for the first time and how it would affect the cinema world. And whether good or bad, the filmmakers promise we’ll hear from critics, filmmakers, distributors and film festival programmers and get their honest reactions to A Serbian Film.
If you’re unfamiliar with A Serbian Film, check out the trailer and synopsis below; it goes without saying that the film is extremely disturbing.
Official Synopsis: An aging porn star (Srdjan Todorovic) who’s struggling to provide for his family agrees to make a film that, unbeknown to him, contains themes of pedophilia, necrophilia and may end with his death.
We don’t have release dates yet for the Director’s Cut of A Serbian Film, or A Serbian Documentary, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as details emerge. Stay tuned!
