Girl Who Opposed The Sun
Between dream and dream
Marija directs films that blur borders between documentary and fiction and treats her narratives as non-linear, complex and fragmented. She is The New School for Media Studies in New York and Academy of Arts in Belgrade alumna. Her recent projects focus on cultural heritage, ancestral music and experimental sound, an interest derived from her background in music as a traditional Serbian music vocalist.
In 2016, Marija founded production house Bilboke in Serbia. She is a member of DokSerbia, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in category Film/Video for 2015 and Instituto Sacatar in Brazil film fellow for 2017. Since September 2019, she's been a part of the collective behind Set Sail Films, a film company in Belgrade.
