Koga denot nemase ime

When the Day Had no Name

 
Im April 2012 wurden an einem See im Umland von Skopje die Leichen von mazedonischen Teenagern gefunden. Ihre Geschichte erzählt von einer im Balkan-Umbruch verlorenen Generation: Milan, Petar, Cvetan, Rape, Ace und Vladan sind gewöhnliche Jugendliche wie alle anderen, deren Alltag von zerrütteten Familienverhältnissen, mangelndem Geld und Träumen von einer besseren Zukunft geprägt ist. Sie planen einen Angelausflug und verbringen vierundzwanzig Stunden zusammen, in denen sie einander näherkommen und nach und nach ihre wahren Gesichter zeigen. (Berlin International Film Festival)

Milan and his best friend Petar prepare an adventurous excursion with some other teenagers from the outskirts of Skopje. They are adrenalized for a boys’ night out of drinking and horseplay before an early morning fishing expedition. They are typical teenagers full of sexual and romantic tensions and angst about money and material things. They are sometimes devilish and sometimes angelic – hungry to be adults, yet they still mostly act like children. They all have dysfunctional relationships with their parents, and they represent a whole generation of youth raised in a time of transition and questionable values. Their night of fun is tainted by ethnic tensions and a visit gone wrong to a teenaged prostitute …
