  • Ivan & Ivana

    2011. USA. Directed by Jeff Silva. In his documentary-poem on the Kosovo crisis, Balkan Rhapsodies (which screened at Documentary Fortnight 2008), director Silva introduced Ivan, a wild, troubled young man traumatized by the war in his homeland. Five years later, Silva finds Ivan and his wife, Ivana, living in sunny California, having traded Serbia for suburbia. Hopelessly in debt and caught up in the property bubble as it inflates to the bursting point, Ivan and Ivana struggle with their relationship and their identities as immigrants, and Ivan is suffocated by the American dream. 80 min.
