"DUST" IN MEXICO
The Macedonian feature film “Dust” by the world renowned Macedonian director Milco Mancevski has been shown on several TV channels in Mexico since last week. The film is titled in Spanish and the original translation is “Ashes and Dust.”
A British/German/Italian/Macedonian co-production, “Dust” has been sold to dozens countries in the world.
The film stars Joseph Fiennes (Eliah), David Wenham (Luke), Adrian Lester (Edge), Anne Brochet (Lilith), Nikolina Kujaca (Neda), Vlado Jovanovski (Teacher) and others. Dust is a film that speaks through an experimental form of cubist narration about people being the same anywhere. The film starts in present-day New York and goes through the Wild West to Macedonia at the time of the Ilinden uprising where komitas, soldiers and different mobs and cowboys confront each other. In 2001 “Dust” opened the Venice Film Festival.
MD: Let's hope they like it just as Macedonians like their tv series so much!
