Kusturica rejects nomination for membership in the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Art

The famous film director, Emir Kusturica, has rejected a nomination for membership in the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Art (SANU).

Kusturica explained that he believes that the head of the SANU, Vladimir Kostic doesn’t have good intentions and that his vision for the future of Kosovo and Metohija differs to Kostic’s. Kusturica added Kostic’s vision for Kosovo also “differs from the majority of the SANU members, although they are not vocal about it, but is completely in line with Soros’ vision of an occupied Kosovo and Metohija, but also of Serbia’s future.”

“With a heavy heart, I made the decision to decline the SANU’s Department of Language and Literature nomination and to kindly ask them to remove my name the list (of candidates),” Kusturica said.

He went on to say that the “vindictive” president of SANU, Vladimir Kostic, was behind this nomination and that there are many younger writers in Serbia who deserve to be members of the SANU more than he does.

The film director also said that it would have been more logical if he was nominated to become a member of the newly established Department of Art at the SANU instead of the Department of Language and Literature.

“Such a nomination would have more sense and would give real meaning to the whole procedure. Currently, the doors (to SANU membership) are open to hard-working artists, but especially to those whose political correctness is more pronounced than their art,” Kusturica concluded.
