Taurunum Boy is yet another documentary film that will delight fans of the genre at the Cinema Now Festival, screening immediately after Hannyland and Granny Project.
Taurunum Boy is a local film about boys who seem strong and tough, and spend their time in abandoned buildings throwing parties and riding bikes… „Their dreams are simple and their loves are unrequited.“, as stated in the film’s synopsis, „but this summer brings them into adulthood.“
The boys’ names are Stefan Tarabić, Bojan Nedeljković, Igor and Lazar Revišin, and Mateja Eraković. The film is written and co-directed by Jelena Maksimović and Dušan Grubin, while Jelena Angelovski is credited as the producer. The film score is credited to Smoke Mardeljano, Envelope Cruz and ZMN Omerta.
Cinema Now is a two-day pop-up festival scheduled for October 26 and 27 of this year at the Svilara Cultural Station in Novi Sad and is organized by Cinema City.
The venue perfectly blends good music, good films, as well as an attractive, formerly industrial location which is now redesigned into a cultural zone.
Apart from Turunum Boys, so far the festival has announced the screening of Granny Project, Zaposlena, Blossom Valley, Teret, Zemlja meda, Ti imaš noć, and Aleksi, while more films are to be announced soon. The film selection will encompass some of the most interesting movies by younger authors from Serbia, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, etc.
The entrance to the festival is free of charge, while it is recommended to reserve a place up front, to avoid large crowds and overall rush at the entrance.
The majority of the authors will be our guests during the two days of the festival, where one of our goals is to organize Q&A sessions after the film projections, as is frequently done during the Cinema City festival.
The project Cinema Now is realized by Cinema City in cooperation with the Novi Sad 2021 – European Capital of Culture Foundation.
