Movies “Mothers” and “Before the Rain” will be screened as well. After the screening of the movies, Manchevski Monday, December 2 will discuss on the subject: “Film, conflict, representation”. Students and professors of Cambridge and visitors of the discussion will be able to ask questions and talk with Manchevski.

University of Cambridge is the third oldest and one of the most prestigious and most qualified university in the world, resulting in 90 Nobel Prize winners that studied there.

“Mothers” was screened on November 30, and is included among the 40 best European films by the European Film Academy on 2010. On Monday 2 December at 5 pm, “Before the Rain” will be screened. Before the Rain is the most successful Macedonian film ever.

Milcho Manchevski has directed four features (Before the Rain, Dust, Shadows, Mothers) and 50 short forms (Tennessee for Arrested Development, Thursday, etc). He has won over 40 international awards, including the Golden Lion for Best Film in Venice. His works are part of the curricula at many universities.

The New York Times included Before the Rain on its list of 1,000 best films ever made, and Rolling Stone put Tennessee on its list of 100 best videos ever made.
