I Am From Titov Veles (Jas Sum Od Titov Veles) - Amazon.com Exclusive
Set in the quaint but scarred town of Veles, three sisters long to escape the suffocating environment of their dying community. Burdened by memories of their late father, each chooses a different path: Sapho struggles to secure a visa to Greece, Slavica desperately searches for a rich husband, and Afrodita harbors hopes for love and children.
In this contemporary story of urban decay, director Teona Strugar Mitevska blends stark realism with memorable performances to create a vivid landscape of life and longing in post-communist Macedonia.
"Blending stark realism with a dreamlike world of premonition and fantasy, Mitevska's elegiac, subtly Chekhovian film is a haunting portrait of modern life in the Balkans." –Museum of Modern Art
"Surreal and fascinating." –Variety
