About the Event

Enjoy watching Whose is this Song? anytime Saturday and Sunday, October 22-23 at the 17th Annual Macedonian Film Festival!

In Director, Adela Peeva's search for the true origins of a haunting melody, the filmmaker travels

to Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia, Serbia and Bulgaria. The trip

is filled with humour, suspense, tragedy and surprise as each country's

citizens passionately claim the song to be their own and can even furnish

elaborate histories for its origins. The tune emerges again and again in

different forms: as a love song, a religious hymn, a revolutionary anthem, and

even a military march. The powerful emotions and stubborn nationalism

raised by one song seem at times comical, and other times, eerily telling. In a

region besieged by ethnic hatred and war, what begins as a light-hearted

investigation ends as a sociological and historical exploration of the deep

misunderstandings between the people of the Balkans.
