HOW TO SURVIVE ISOLATION WITH THE HELP OF CULTURE
We asked our young and promising actress Maja Susa how she spends her days and what she would recommend. Maja Susa is the founder and creative director of Basta Fest, an international festival of short film in Bajina Basta. She’s also the author of the radio show “In your own garden” which is being aired on Radio Aparat on Fridays at 5 PM. She acted in multiple plays, TV shows, and films, and this year she’s expecting the premiere of the film “After winter”, by young director Ivan Bakrac, in which she’s having one of the main roles.
Basta Fest regularly shares interesting films from our past festivals on our social networks. Anyone can find something that interests them, and it’s also an opportunity to further develop an interest in short films. Also, there’s Moj Off (Online film festival) running at the moment and you can check their website and watch films from the FEST or Festival of Auteur Film Festival, as well as program for kids.
A myriad of online theatre content has emerged in this short period of isolation. However, it’s very important how the play was shot and directed for it to be watchable on screen. It seems to me that theaters are forcing quantity over quality and uploading staged plays at all costs, which isn’t good. I hope we won’t have to wait long to physically go to a theatre again.
This is an ideal moment to read Elena Ferrante’s “Neapolitan Series”. I’m currently reading “Catch a Rabbit” by Lana Bastasic, and I can also recommend Ana Vuckovic’s “Yugoslava”.
WHAT CAN BE DONE ONLINE IN ISOLATION?
There is a lot of content – online visits to museums, online training, yoga lessons, free language courses and more. I believe this isolation is ideal to devote the time to ourselves and fulfill some of the wishes we thought we didn’t have time for.
