LE FILM has been established, as a business and legal entity, to realize five-year efforts of the author and a group of collaborators. The key goal is to systemize, conceptualize and finalize their efforts through a feature film “Once Upon a Time in Serbia”.
Ergo, LE FILM, the first production company in a city where one cinema played a crucial role in transforming the small Turkish town into a European city.
This is revivification of a time when certain authentic and creative townsman choose the ‘actors’ who will change the history of Leskovac forever. In fact, this is an opening of a true local treasury of heritage which is much more than barbecue, peppers and caricaturing dialect. The public will experience an explosion of creation and wittiness, they will enter a laughter production factory, which has never stopped working, enduring the challenges of time unlike many others.
Zvonimir Simunec is the founder of LE FILM, as well as the author, co-scriptwriter and producer of the “Golden Age” project. Zvonimir has also produced a documentary film about the same period with a group of collaborators as a preparation for the feature movie. And in a collaboration with the National Museum of Leskovac, Zvonimir has published a monography and organized two representative exhibits, in Leskovac and Belgrade, with a number of artifacts accompanied by rich photo and video materials.
