Born Just Now at FLIFF
November 10 @ 9:00 pm
Robert Adanto’s new documentary BORN JUST NOW will be screening twice as an Official Selection of the 33rd annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. The screenings will take place on Sunday, November 4 at 8:00pm at The Savor Cinema in Fort Lauderdale, and Saturday, November 10th at 9:00pm at Cinema Paradiso Hollywood.
BORN JUST NOW offers an intimate look at Marta Jovanović, a Belgrade-based artist struggling to cope with the violence that has ended an eight-year marriage. Daring to live on her own terms, Jovanović has chosen art and art-making over marriage and abuse. Through provocative acts of endurance exploring intimacy, motherhood and the trauma of the Balkan wars, Jovanović seeks to confront, release, and liberate her own pain in the name of art. This personal portrait is a moving meditation on what it means to be a fearless female artist living in the 21st century. Through Jovanović’s words and performances, the story of contemporary women’s ongoing struggle for equality emerges.
The film participated in the 2016 Sundance Institute Documentary Program’s Rough-Cut Lab in Miami.
