[edit] Information

It seems that many in the city of Belgrade, Yugoslavia, have fallen in love with 'Dyana'. But this Dyana is a bit in need of a makeover. While to some, she is still the stuff of dreams, the rest of the world knows Dyana by another name: the Citroen 2CV, an iconic French car designed "to carry two people and fifty kilos of potatoes at 60km/h". It is, in the words of its inventors, "easy to maintain, and able to drive over a ploughed field carrying a basket of eggs without breaking a single one". To the dispossessed gypsies (Roma) living in squatter camps around Belgrade, she has her uses: Dyanas are cannibalized until they resemble apocalyptic workhorses from a science fiction film, and even the car batteries are used as power generators in order to get some light, watch TV and recharge mobiles - practically an alchemist's dream come true! But the gypsies' love affair with their 2CVs is deeply practical. Unfortunately, Belgrade police and residents do not hold the same high regard for these handy vehicles as their refugee neighbors. Boris Mitic's film, Pretty Dyana, is an intimate, humorous look at the marriage of the 2CV and the Roma people of Belgrade.

Winner of 12 international awards Filmed, edited, written and directed by Boris Mitić 45 minutes, Serbo-Croatian audio with English hard-coded subtitles, 2003
