Chairman of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s (BiH’s) Presidency Milorad Dodik announced on Wednesday on the official website that famous film director Emir Kusturica will be his advisor in this mandate.

Prior country’s general elections in October 2018, Dodik promised he will appoint Kusturica as his adviser for four years term.

Sixty-four years old Kusturica is a motion picture director, screenwriter, actor, and producer who was one of the most-distinguished European filmmakers since the mid-1980s.

He is mainly known for the family drama in 1981 “Do You Remember Dolly Bell?”, a story about an adolescent growing up in a poor family dominated by despotic father back in the 1960s, and which later won the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival.

Kusturica is best known for surreal and naturalistic movies that express deep sympathies for marginalized people.

Kusturica directed his first English-language movie in 1992 called “Arizona Dream,” telling a story of a man Alex who gets caught up into the family car business, after which he meets an eccentric woman named Elaine and their lives become inextricably intertwined through romance, dreams and death. The film won the Silver Bear – Special Jury Prize at the 43rd Berlin International Film Festival.

“When Father Was Away on Business”, in 1985, another famous movie directed by Kusturica, takes place in 1948 during the time of Yugoslavia and communism, telling a story of Mesha who is being arrested and is in prison. His family is forced to cope with the situation and wait for his release. The story is told from the perspective of Malik, his young son who believes the mother’s story about father being “away on business trip”.
