Yugoslavia, How Ideology Moved Our Collective Body is a research-based essay film that deals with the question of how ideology performs itself in public space through mass performances. The author collected and analyzed film and video footage from the period of Yugoslavia (1945 – 2000), focusing state performances such as youth work actions, May Day parades, celebrations of the Youth Day, as well as counter-demonstrations, in particular the 1968 student demonstrations, the civic demonstrations in the 1990s, and 5 October Revolution 2000. Traversing this archival footage, the film traces how communist ideology was gradually exhausted through the changing relations between the people, ideology, and the state.
Followed by a dance performance.
