In the period 1961-71 the pessimistic and artistically intriguing films made by the directors of the “Black Wave” attracted international attention and provoked the Yugoslav political establishment. Some films were locked away, many directors were prompted to change their profession or leave the country. Lazar Stojanović was even given a 3-year prison sentence for his anarchic PLASTIČNI ISUS (1971). The documentary recalls the fateful relationship between art and polit-bureaucracy.
