"KONTAKT" is a laconical comedy from Macedonia that has been awarded on several international film festivals. The Macedonian tragicomedy "KONTAKT" by Sergej Stanojkovski tells of unusual lovers, of two "socially unacceptable" people – Janko, an ex-prisoner, and Zana, whose entire life is thrown off balance – who overcome their differences in post-war Macedonia to find happiness.
Based on a screenplay by Gordan Mihic (author of Emri Kusturica's "Black Cat, White Cat") and featuring superstars such as Labina Mitewska ("Welcome to Sarajevo") from Macedonia and Nikola Kojo ("Life is a Miracle") from Serbia, the German-Macedonian director Sergej Stanojkovski shot a parable about the current situation in former Yugoslavia. A blend of comedy and melancholy.
