WHITE WHITE WORLD

In this beautiful and brutal drama, King, a handsome boxer-turned-barman falls for teenage Rosa, a dynamic and untamable beauty in the decaying Serbian mining town of Bor. Soon after, Rosa's once-seductive mother Ruzica emerges from prison, now hardened after a seven-year sentence for murdering her husband to protect her lover, and finds her daughter falling into the same self-destructive pitfalls. Unable to bear her oppressive mother, Rosa flees to the big city with Tiger, a young drug addict who lives with her, only to be pursued by the obdurate King. Their star-crossed love triggers a powerful series of events that drive the residents of Bor inexorably toward a fateful and moving finale.

Reminiscent of classical Greek theater, White White World is an epic, operatic tragedy staged against the stark landscape of a crumbling mining town. Incorporating intimate and stirring musical soliloquies seamlessly into a slow-burn drama of murder, addiction, and doomed love, new Serbian auteur Oleg Novkovic crafts an emotionally powerful, formally daring work—timeless, yet unprecedented, and surely one of the boldest visions to emerge from a recent robust crop of current Serbian filmmaking.
