Violence does not solve any problem - Kosovcevic:

Through violence you will never get anything good says Bojan Vuk Kosovcevic director of Serbian film ‘The Whirlpool’, During a media interaction, ‘Meet the Director’ at the 44th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Panjim, Goa he said, Indian films are liked by Serbian people for their artistic appeal.
He said that ‘The Whirlpool’, is set in the second half of the 1990s in Belgrade against the backdrop of disintegration of Yugoslavia and its socio-economic impact on Serbia. He said that social extremes were apparent everywhere in Serbia especially among the youth during the collapse of Serbia. He said that due to war, inflation, physical isolation and sanctions, Serbia was becoming a kind of closed society, which was most visible in Serbia’s capital, Belgrade. He said, his film ‘The Whirlpool’ is about this isolated environment, where the young begun to create their own worlds. It is seen from the perspectives of those youth who were becoming adults, and about their efforts to find themselves getting sucked into a chaotic whirlpool of violence. The debut feature film director said that though his country is rich in terms of infrastructure and marketing of films, still people are not going to theatres because of television and advent of internet. He said that collaboration between countries is the solution to this problem.
