(28 minutes) Serbia
Director: Olivera Milos Todorovic
Producer: Miodrag Milosevic
Tracing the thoughts of three seventeen-year-old girls and their authentic environment, the film builds a story about the adolescent drama of growing up in a society that promotes aggression, alienation, profanity, hopelessness and social autism. Adopting as its title the term Chill Out, the film embodies the prevailing attitude of the new generation bred on a mix of Grand Production and MTV and seeks the answer to the question: What are current generations like and whose merit are they?
