The Makavejev Case or Trial in a Movie Theater is a documentary film exploring the position that artists-filmmakers held in former socialist Yugoslavia. More specifically, it focuses on the political conjuncture and the prevailing ambience within the Yugoslavian society at the time, which led – of course, under the patronage of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia – to the ban of Dušan Makavejev's film WR: Mysteries of the Organism (1971). An in-depth homage to a legendary director, who refused to abide by the rules and changed once for all the course of Yugoslavian cinema.
