Dimitar Anakiev (1960, Beograd) is an independent filmmaker, writer and poet, was born in Belgrade in 1960. He completed his Faculty of Medicine at University of Niš, Serbia. He resided in Slovenia, beginning in 1987 but shortly thereafter and without warning found himself among the victims of administrative ethnic cleansing (“Erased”). Anakiev purchased a small video camera and began his film career, in an attempt to make himself and other marginal Balkans’ people visible. The success of his films (including the Slovenian national film award) has made it possible for him to continue filmmaking as a screenwriter, director and producer.
Discussion with Dimitar Anakiev will follow a projection of his film Slovenia My Homeland on Saturday, 13 June 2015, at the Slovenian Cinematheque.
