film stillA locked door inside a Belgrade home has kept one family separated from their past for generations. An intimate conversation between the director and her mother, the dynamic activist and scholar Srbijanka Turajlić, reveals a house and a country haunted by history. What begins as the chronicle of a childhood home grows into an elegant portrait of a charismatic and brilliant woman in times of great political turmoil.

"Critic's Pick! Engrossing; this thoroughly absorbing documentary details [one] family’s rich history within the fluctuating fortunes of Serbian democracy." The New York Times

"The story of Srbijanka Turajlić’s resistance, and the ongoing impediments to progress, reflect with an unmistakable and disturbing clarity both the pathologies of current American politics and the depressingly difficult path that the resistance to an authoritarian government faces." The New Yorker

"An historic step for Serbian cinema... Powerful and honest." Vice Magazine

"Fascinating; a standout... A stirring portrait of one of the most galvanizing voices for political action in contemporary documentary cinema." —The Independent
