Secret Heart

“Secret Heart” is a personal documentary about an unfulfilled love story and second chances. In 1991 Ilija was sent to Sweden by his father in order to escape from the Yugoslav army. I was a melancholic 18-year-old about to graduate from high school. 23 years later we reconnect. We compare our memories and how our lives developed from that point on. I try to ask all the questions I didn’t dare to ask before. Then things take a melodramatic turn.

Tempo tipsar! Emilie Löfgren, redaktör för programtidningen.

I want to tell about my favorite films The Artist and the Thief; an exciting film about how a theft becomes the beginning of an unlikely friendship where they are both forced to face demons from the past. Our Time Machine is a great movie about creative anxiety, a father suffering from dementia who's memories  become increasingly blurred and the director's longing for his own family.
