Maja likes pushing boundaries. The charismatic young director gained praise already as a student, with her short film Si tu t’imagine (2004), a tale of longing for love and passion hidden behind a sex trafficking episode.
Her first full-length feature Clip (2012), explores the tension between apathy and unrestrained, euphoric aggression of teenagers captured in dismal Serbian everyday reality. Maja’s characters find escape in the parallel world of sex, drugs and video tapes, bound by energy they cannot control.
Combining fast, explicit imagery with an atmosphere of dreamy melancholy, Maja’s upcoming film is sure to raise some eyebrows in Balkan and European cinema alike. Read the post on Maja Milos in our Ones to Watch 2012 series here.
