Hotel Jugoslavija (2017)

  • Documentary
  • 1h 18m

Erected in Belgrade in 1969, the Hotel Jugoslavia was a mythical place. It was both a symbol of, and a witness to, the various moments that shaped former Yugoslavia: from Tito to Milosevic; from Socialism to Nationalism; from NATO’s bombings to corrupted economic liberalism. Today its ruined, monumental presence haunts Belgrade’s landscape, a reflection of a Serbian society in search of new milestones. With this journey through the times and spaces of this once-magnificent building, the director, Nicolas Wagnières – of Yugoslavian origin on his mother’s side but born and raised in Switzerland – explores both a collective unconscious and a part of his own identity.
