Director Statement

When I was a kid, I used to play in Bambiland, same as main character of my film did. Bambiland was an amusement park, but now it’s just an abandoned, creepy, place - and as such - it is a perfect metaphor for surrounding of people who live in Serbia. We all live in ruined amusement park, and all we have left is a memory of carefree childhood.
