The Old School Of Capitalism

The Old School Of Capitalism

In a playful, often hilarious mixture of documentary and fiction, film maker Želimir Žilnik traces sanctifying capitalism, sold to the Serbians after the disappearance of state socialism as the great new god. As a background for his story, Žilnik uses a number of strikes that took place in Belgrade in recent years and introduces us to several people involved who are allowed to ‚play‘ themselves. That leads to explosive situations. Employees dressed in American football gear come to settle up with their well-protected employers. The factories, however, have already been emptied. The arrival of a Russian tycoon and the American vice president Joe Biden light the fuse.
