A long-awaited Balkan Trafik Festival opens its doors in Brussels

A long-awaited Balkan Trafik Festival:
We arrived a few hours earlier to get our press passes and enjoy a slow plunge into the waves of Yugoslavian happiness. We had enough time to walk around the Centre of Fine Arts to snap a few shots of ‘one spring evening in Brussels’ when we literally ran into him – Emir Kusturica! He was exiting a car next to the entrance of BOZAR.
I will not pretend I wasn’t petrified. I was. I did not take the opportunity to give my prepared present to him. But this feeling of “being as immovable as marble’ was accompanied by a glorious emotion of indescribable bliss.
Most of the really wanted things we do in our lives scare and thrill us at the same time…
A review on the conversation with Emir Kusturica and the videos are coming out soon.
