Model House
Goran Radovanovic, 21 min. Serbia. 2000

Model House (2000) follows a Serbian cleaning woman who is a refugee from the Krajina region. Although she is grateful to be working, taking care of the homes of others reminds her of the home she lost during the war. Her narrative is juxtaposed with scenes from the NATO bombing, visuals of dingy refugee camps, excerpts from state television broadcasts spewing inane propaganda, and a voiceover of Milosevic intoning, among other things, "All must be sacrificed for the people, except the people." This is the story about an ex-Yugoslav refugee who wants to be what she once was: an ordinary woman with her own home.
Model House is a satirical quasi-documentary in which the author makes fun of the lack of proper housing of refugee Serbs from Croatia who are living in exile in Serbia. An artificial modular drawing of a house could be a residence for these people, but it also concentrates on the terrible, cramped conditions in which they actually live.
