Gotovac is a figure of seminal importance in the history of Yugoslav cinema. He was a versatile filmmaker, conceptual and performance artist, and a hardcore cinephile (As soon as I open my eyes in the morning, I see film). Since the 1960s, his avant-garde practices have greatly inspired generations of filmmakers and artists. This program features five of Gotovac’s key works, screened from new prints.
 Screening will be followed by a Q&A with Slobodan Šijan [Belgrade] and Pavle Levi [Stanford].
