Skopje, 21 March 2019 (MIA) – The Cinematheque of North Macedonia will host a launch for a collection of Kiril Cenevski’s digitally restored films.
The DVD includes Cenevski’s Black Seed (1971), Misery (1975), The Lead Brigade (1980) and The Knot (1985).
Special guests at the launch will be Serbian actor of Macedonian descent Lazar Ristovski, and Macedonian-born Croatian actress Kostadinka Velkovska.
Both starred in The Knot.
Cinematheque’s press release describes Cenevski as “a unique figure in Macedonian filmmaking.”
“Controversial could be his middle name,” the release reads.
“His debut, Black Seed, won all major festival prizes in Yugoslavia.
“It’s also the first Macedonian feature film to have competed and won awards at international film festivals.” mr/10:26
