Dear students, 

on this link you can watch the entire movie. Turn subtitles on while watching it.

After you see it, briefly reflect on the following topics by using the option Comment (Komentiraj) to this post. 

What were your initial reactions to film?

What narratives do you recognize in the movie?

Why do you think Sixto’s albums didn’t succeed in the early 70’s?

Best, Marijana

Dear students, 

I have posted updated list of seminar presentations. I urge you to sign up ASAP in order to be able to present and collect your points. It seems that you'll miss a slot on Tuesday October 27/10 because nobody signed up. In case we run out of slots, you won't be able to present which will result in unnecessary loss of points. 

See you soon!

Dear students,

I am sorry to inform you that I'll see you all through the screen tomorrow. My son needs to self-isolate, along with his entire class. I need to stay at home with him. I also find it wise to physically distance at least for the first couple of days.  

Tomorrow we'll have plenary lecture and plenary seminar.

It means that you should all tune in for the seminar tomorrow. We'll make the best of it and dedicate our seminar time  to explaining and discussing your obligations with essay and presentations, along with essay questions. 

The lecture is from 13-14, then we'll have a 15 minute break;, seminar is from 14:30 - 15:30. 

See you on MSTeams tomorrow at 13:00. 

Best, Marijana
