Mladen Djordjević’s debut feature fiction film The Life and Death of a Porno Gang (2009) was presented at over 50 international festivals, winning 14 awards. Mitch Davis, a selector of the Festival Fantasia in Montreal, compared Djordjevic with authors such as Gaspar Noe, Lars von Trier and Michael Haneke, writing that The Life and Death of a Porno Gang did for Serbia what Clockwork Orange did for Great Britain. He was born in 1978 in Belgrade. He graduated Film & TV Directing at Faculty of Drama Arts in Belgrade with the feature documentary film Made in Serbia, which later premiered at Belgrade Film Festival FEST and went into cinema and DVD distribution in Serbia. He directed several short films (Living Dead, Hunger, Shaving Foam) and documentaries (Ali Hamad’s Story, Straight Through the Wind). Djordjević wrote and directed one of the stories in the omnibus film Equals (2014), which premiered at Sarajevo Film Festival. Since 2014, he is programming FEST, Belgrade Film Festival.
