Bosanoga, an Entirely Accidental Death

Morana Komljenović, 2011.

Categories: Documentary

Nenad Vižin’s violent death was the catalyst for a unique phenomenon in  the history of ex-Yugoslavia: 300 citizens of Rijeka signed a petition  asking the police and the communist party to take responsibility. The  petitioners were submitted to accusations and prosecutions. Although the  events surrounding the death itself remain a mystery, it left its mark  on a whole generation in Rijeka and is still a part of the social fabric  of the city. This film depicts the mechanism of fear as an integral  part of political systems and portrays the unique artistic rebellion  that occurred in Rijeka in the 1980s as a reaction to fear and  powerlessness.
