During the meeting with the audience after the screening of his film Baggage in the Cinema House, Danis Tanovic said that he’s actually quite a joyful person and loves to laugh. But in our conversation he was quite serious and said that certain things make him quite pessimistic. Going back through his films, it is easy to spot the humor in all of them, but it usually serves to lighten up a very dark situation, and to help you through it. Perhaps, the more seriously you look towards...

It turned into a know-how on how to do the things and how they happen. Which a...
