Boris Mitic - Pretty Dyana (2002, 45 mins)
An intimate look at Gypsy refugees in a Belgrade suburb who make a living by transforming Citroen´s classic 2CV and Dyana cars into Mad Max-like recycling vehicles, which they use to collect card-board, bottles and scrap metal. These modern horses are much more efficent than the cart-pushing competition, but even more important, they also mean freedom, hope and style for their crafty owners.
