DIRECTOR: VANJA KOVACEVIC
Adversity fuels creativity, as we all know, but perhaps never more so than when one wants to be a rock musician. Vanja and her best friend are big fans of Portland's The Decemberists. They decide to organize a tribute band but have no experience. Unfortunately for Vanja, whose dream is to be a drummer, counting to four is a challenge–not to mention the fact that she has never actually sat behind a drum kit. But they find musicians (and drums), brand themselves ¬Å“The Writers of Fiction,¬Â and determinedly rehearse for nine and a half months in preparation for their self-scheduled debut.
Inspired by The Decemberists' ¬Å“Born for the Scene,¬Â writer/filmmaker/drummer Kovacevic has fashioned a charming ode to the power of music, following your dream, and the euphoria of accomplishment.(75 mins.)
Winner of the Best Regional Documentary and Best Editing Awards, Belgrade Documentary Festival.
