The cinema works again! / Ponovo radi bioskop!

Vranje's public cinema is broken. And then there was that swimming pool, too. So I organized Vranje residents around the idea of turning their town's defunct public swimming pool into a cinema for one night. But what movies to show?

'Rambo, Rocky, Star Wars…'

'Okay, well then you need to make them yourselves.'

So we showed movies chosen and acted out by residents of Vranje, Serbia, including scenes from Bring it on, Rocky IV, and Star Wars II.
