On the last day of the 28th Palić European Film Festival, the first two episodes of the new Serbian series Kljun, directed by Jelena Gavrilović and Uroš Tomić, will be premiered at the Summer Stage in Palić at 11 pm, as a special screening. In the focus of this series is Sonja Kljun, an ambitious detective from Belgrade, sent to Subotica to investigate a series of suspicious suicides. But after the investigation leads her to a serious conspiracy, dreams from her traumatic past and even more horrific future start to haunt her. At the final press conference of the Palić European Film Festival, directors Jelena Gavrilović and Uroš Tomić, actors Ivana Vuković, Stefan Vukić and Mićko Ljubičić, and producer Biljana Prvanović spoke about the series.
Director Jelena Gavrilović on the premiere of the series screened in Palić, said: "A year ago, we were filming here, so a lot of people will come who participated in the series and appeared in various parts of the filming. We are really looking forward to it”.
Director Uroš Tomić said about the screening at the film festival: "Each series is made for television format. So there’s a really big jitters when you watch it on screen and in front of an audience. I think this will be a serious test for us, because the best audience is here at the Festival, the film lovers. We tried to make this series so that it was at least a bit cinematic.”
Actress Ivana Vuković spoke about the character of detective Sonja Kljun, whom she plays in the series: "It was interesting and exciting for me that there are actually more roles she has to be in, often reluctantly. There are the roles of mother, blood crime inspector, wife, daughter, partner, and she doesn't do well in any of them. For me, perhaps the role of the mother was the most important, because her other roles start from there".
