A Little Village Show

Yugoslavia, (MIFF 1973)

Director: Krsto Papić

A documentary about the election of a beauty queen in a small village. Having been exposed to bad taste and cheap music on television, the villagers transform the occasion into a caricature, highlighting the ill effects of false urbanisation, which results in the impoverishment of the peasants and the land being left uncultivated.
