Ivana Mladenovic is a Romanian director born in Serbia who made headlines with a tabu-breaker debut called Soldiers, in which two men scandalise the surrounding Roma community with their illicit affair. Triggered by a personal crisis from when the director was finishing her provocative first feature and made right after it, almost like a therapy session, Ivana the Terrible is a playful exercise in vulnerability and narcissism. Ivana writes, directs, and stars as her-almost-self in this zany fictional autobiography shot in her native village and featuring her real family and friends playing themselves. As we’re in the Balkans, expect the drama of a woman’s nervous breakdown to morph into an acerbic comedy.
Don’t miss the pre-recorded conversation between filmmaker Ivana Mladenović and Making Waves President Corina Suteu.
