Priča o Americi, filmu i ocu: Reditelj Srđa Penezić vretio se posle tri decenije u Srbiju

Priču o životu u Americi, svom filmu "Dobrica" i ocu, Slobodanu Peneziću Krcunu, pratićemo u emisiji "Srbija na vezi"

Reditelj Srđa Penezić, proveo je više od tri decenije u Njujorku i Los Anđelesu, a pre nekoliko godina vratio se u Srbiju. Priču o životu u Americi, svom filmu "Dobrica" i ocu, Slobodanu Peneziću Krcunu, pratićemo u emisiji "Srbija na vezi" (RTS 2, 16.50), urednice Tamare Drezgić.

Peneziću je Amerika oduvek bila kulturno bliža, kroz muziku, književnost i film. Međutim, kada se posle više od 30 godina vratio u domovinu, shvatio je da se mnogo bolje oseća i razume sa našim ljudima nego sa Amerikancima. Da više pripada ovde, nego tamo. Jedan događaj u Americi inspirisao ga je da napiše scenario za film "Dobrica", koji je i režirao. Glavnu ulogu tumači Slavko Štimac, a film je okupio naše ljude koji žive u Srbiji i Americi, Mirjanu Joković, Radana Popovića.

Srđa će, u emisiji, evocirati i uspomene na svoga oca, Slobodana Penezića Krcuna, nekadašnjeg predsednika Izvršnog veća Skupštine Srbije, jednu od najvažnijih ličnosti posleratne Jugoslavije. Njegov život, ali i saobraćajna nesreća u kojoj je nastradao, 1964. godine, i danas predstavljaju jednu od najvećih misterija Titovog vremena.

Kada je 1980. godine, sa drugom, Velimirom Abramovićem, otišao u London, Srđa je maštao o tome da napišu roman. Posle godinu dana, Velja se vratio u Jugoslaviju, a Penezić je otišao u Ameriku. Živeo je najpre u Njujorku, gradu koji ga je mnogo podsećao na Beograd, a prelaskom u Los Anđeles počeo je da radi u struci. Tokom godina provedenih u Americi, Srđa je sretao mnoge naše ljude koji su iz različitih razloga napustili Jugoslaviju i Srbiju.

The Meaning of Reality

Essays on Existence and Communion, Eros and History

by Christos Yannaras

The collection of articles traces the thought of Christos Yanaras through his long journey in discovering the meaning of existence, communion, eros, and history. It is a cause of immense joy that no fewer than twenty articles of passionate significance and substance have at present been gathered together in this volume under the title The Meaning of Reality.

Yannaras is undoubtedly one of the most significant thinkers of our time. Kallistos Ware once described him as "the most creative and prophetic religious thinker at work in Greece today," while Rowan Williams characterizes him as "one of the most significant Christian philosophers in Europe." His very wide and no less deep education helps him to develop an inimitable blend of philosophy, theology, and social criticism, and to speak in an original way about the traditional and contemporary issues of human existence, as well as the latest challenges of modern empirical science and political engagement. A detailed knowledge of the writings of the Holy Fathers has always been his foundation amidst the labyrinth of modern thought - which is inimately bound up with psychoanalysis, environmental issues, human rights, postmodernism, and pluralism , to mention just a few. Insistence on the primacy, uniqueness, and eternal value of human personality prevails in almost all his works and inspires his own vigorous theological and ecumenical engagement, based on the Orthodox eucharistic and ascetic tradition.
