Ghetto – the secret life of Belgrade


Geto – tajni zivot grada” (Ghetto – the secret life of the city) is a documentary from 1995 told from the perspective of Goran Čavajda “Čavke”, well known rock musician from Serbia at the time. It tells about the rock, alternative and “underground” scene in Belgrade during the worst period in the nineties, when turbo-folk became the way of life in Serbia. This is the first time I see this documentary with subtitles and I think it’s one of the best documentaries on Belgrade I’ve seen, so I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Čavke died two years after the film was made in Tasmania, far away from Belgrade and Serbia.
