Documentary film festival in Belgrade from 2nd to 5th February

The fifth edition of the international festival of feature-length documentary film DOK #5 will be held from February 2 to 5 in the Mts Dvorana.

On Thursday, February 2 at 7:30 p.m., the festival will open with the film “My Friend Tommy” by the young Canadian director of Serbian origin, Nem Stanković. “My Friend Tommy” is a humorous, generational film about the sexual maturation of a virginal 40-year-old man.

On the occasion of the screening of the film in Belgrade, Nem Stanković said that it meant a lot to him that “My Friend Tommy” will have its European premiere in Belgrade.

“The premiere taking place in Belgrade means a lot to me because of the support we received from the Serbian community and the media. Belgrade is my hometown and I am very excited that my first film is coming to my hometown and my country. It will be an honour for me to share the experience of making this film first in Serbia. Every culture is different, and everyone sees something different and interesting in our film, so we can’t wait to see how it will be received in Serbia. We are very grateful to the DOK Festival for this opportunity. There are hundreds of millions of adult virgins in the world. This is the story of one of them”, said Stanković.

“My Friend Tommy” tells the true story of a 40-year-old Tommy Lee who lives with very strict and religious parents from Korea. Tommy has never cooked, been on a date, kissed a girl and doesn’t have a bank account. When his best friend Nem decides to take Tommy on an epic journey, a whole world of tension, fears and past traumas are revealed.
