Parade / Parada (2011)

116 min / fiction, Feature Film

A homophobic former criminal and war veteran Limun finds himself in a difficult situation: in cooperation with gay activists he must protect the Serbian Pride Parade. Parade is a tragicomic story about two opposing worlds in the today's Serbian society: about the traditional, conservative and homophobic majority and the liberal, modern and open‑minded minority.   Director's statement  "The film is an honest story about what people are willing to do for the attention of someone they love, regardless of their gender. Parade is a film about tolerance, understanding, and the fact that very different people can become friends regardless of their sexual orientation, ethnicity or religion. This is why Parade is much more than a film about a gay parade. Already the fact that it is a Serbian-Croatian-Macedonian-Slovenian co‑production speaks for itself. Parade is a funny as well as a sad film." Srdjan Dragojević
