TFF: Bleakness in 'White White World'

RUZICA (Jasna Djuricic) makes a huge sacrifice for those she loves in Oleg Novkovic's "White White World.

The film, making its North American premiere at the 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival, is a modern-day Greek tragedy with a chorus and requisite assortment of tragic creatures. In the dying southeast Serbian mining town of Bor, inhabitants have little to occupy them other than drink, smoke and illicit drugs.

Surrounded by bilious smoke from factories that has made the sky permanently gray and foggy, they don't laugh to keep from crying. They shed tears and resort to songs - sad, sad songs. The next screening is tonight at 10:30. More later.
