My way 50 / My way 50 (2018)

83 min / docu-feature middle, medium- length

A biographical feature about the times that Maja Weiss has, during the five decades of her life, experienced and recorded with her films, which she signs as a directress, screenwriter, or camerawoman. Maja Weiss shot her first short at the AGRFT in 1984 and bought her first video camera as soon as she received her first fee in filmmaking: as a script supervisor in 1987.

"She and I", who am I, who we are.

The film is an insight in the life and work of the directress: it reveals her personal "rosebud" and describes her socially critical outlook on the society since Tito's death in 1980 to the present days of rampant terrorism, refugee crises, and unemployment.
