Janez Burger, a film director
In_Mladina we have a rubric Profil. This time it was written by Jure Aleksič (my favourite Mladina’s journalist) about Janez Burger, a film director. With two of his films he won 19 awards only in Slovenia and many more abroad. His third film Na sončni strani alp (On the sunny side of Alps) was a short one and in it’s exploring all the cliches of Slovenia, just that actors are all Africans or Afro-Americans. My first idea would be that actors from the film in their Slovenian folk dresses would photograph him being almost naked sort of native African like. He didn’t had time and frankly neither did I, so we abolish the idea.
I’m satisfied with the picture, although I must admit that lately I’m running out of time devoted to photography.
