Serbian film: THE HEALING – 2015 Release
‘The Healing: Isceljenje’ is a Serbian film by Ivan Jović that tells the story of an Orthodox monk grappling with the aftereffects of war in his homeland. Carrying this pain in his heart the monk finds his way to a secluded hermitage in the wildness where he encounters a Bosnian father and son, undergoing an experience he never thought possible.
A visually splendid and spiritually uplifting film, ‘The Healing’ takes the viewer on a journey of forgiveness and transfiguration. The rich, spiritual cinematography is only matched by the angelic soundtrack sung by renowned Byzantine singer, Nektaria Karantzi, transporting audiences to a profound state of spiritual awakening.
The film will be making its world premiere on 7th November 2014 at FilmFestival Cottbus in Germany, a festival dedicated to celebrating filmmakers from Eastern Europe.
