Мила Турајлић у Америчкој академији бира документарац за Оскара

Редитељку Милу Турајлић позвала је Америчка академија за филмску уметност и науку да буде њихов члан у сектору документаристике, што значи да ће моћи да учествује и у гласању за Оскара у категорији документарних остварења, преноси Танјуг. Задовољство због овог позива, редитељка је поделила на својој фејсбук страници. Академија је позвала 819 филмских уметника и радника „који су се истакли доприносом биоскопским филмовима и филмској уметности”, а поред Турајлићеве на листи су и аутори филма „Земља меда” Тамара Котевска и Љубо Стефанов, али и многобројни добитници Оскара попут екипе филма „Паразит”.

„Веома сам почаствована позивом да се придружим академији. Невероватно је што ћу се наћи у тако цењеном друштву, у класи 2020, чији је досадашњи рад веома инспиришући. У њих сврставам многе пријатеље, колеге и менторе, а то само показује великодушност и љубав које ова заједница пружа”, написала је Турајлићева, која је недавно дошла у Београд како би доснимила сцене за свој нови документарни филм „Досије Лабудовић”, за који завршава монтажу.

Bishop Jovan (Mladenović)

(1994–2002)

The Divine provision brought the spiritual father of the Monastery Studenica, Bishop Jovan, to continue the work left by the equally most esteemed and humblest spiritual father of the Monastery Hilandar, Bishop Chrysostom.

As an accomplished monastic with the spiritual wealth he attained in the Studenica Monastery, he enriched his flock and clergy. Very soon he gained respect and confidence of his clergy and the faithful.

Bishop Jovan was born in 1950 of father Radojko and mother Stana Mladenović in the village of Dobrace, near Arilje, Serbia. He finished elementary school in his village. At the age of twelve, he went to the Klisura Monasteiy where he remained for one year and then went to the Studenica Monastery. He attended the monastic school in the Ostrog Monastery from 1967 until 1969. He was ordained a hierodeacon in the Studenica Monastery on April 25, 1971. He retained his baptized name of Jovan. Rt. Rev. Vasilije, Bishop of Žiča ordained him as hieromonk in 1973. He graduated from St. Sava Seminary in Belgrade in 1974 and from Theologcial College in Belgrade in 1980.
