CINEMA KOMUNISTO tells the story of a country that no longer exists, except for in the movies. Taking us on a journey through the crumbling remnants of the former Yugoslavia and President Josip Broz Tito's state-funded film industry, this fascinating historical documentary cracks the vaults at the famed Avala Film Studios (home to big-budget productions starring the likes of Richard Burton, Sophia Loren and Orson Welles) and explores the rise and fall of the cinematic illusion called Yugoslavia. Using rare excerpts from dozens of forgotten Yugoslav films, never-seen-before archive footage from film sets, and revealing interviews with many of the film industry's key players, including Tito’s personal film projectionist, CINEMA KOMUNISTO recreates the narrative of a former country: the stories constructed for the screen and the ones hidden within the frame.

While this documentary captures a fascinating piece of history, it fails to give the sort of details that should seem logical. Once the film moves past 1948, I had a very hard time determining what year these strange films were being made. But it is an often interesting glimpse into cinematic history of which I was unaware.
