Over the past year, Ivan Marinović has been busy preparing for his debut into production with his inaugural film,  The Black Pin . Sponsored by Luštica Bay, as part of our ongoing commitment to local talent,  Living Montenegro  readers may already be familiar with Ivan, as we previously featured a  Q&A  with him last year during pre-production.

On 15th September, Luštica Bay hosted a spectacular event to showcase Ivan’s splendid film, which was first screened at this year’s Sarajevo Film Festival. Set in the Luštica Peninsula,  The Black Pin  is a typical Balkan comedy – combined with wit and humour and gorgeous landscapes.

Watch the trailer here:

The film tells the story of a priest called Peter, who finds himself at odds with his neighbours of his small parish when he opposes the sale of a large countryside estate. Inevitably, Peter’s outspoken views lands him into trouble with the local community. Alas, we would not want to spoil the plot for you!

Following the successful screenings in Luštica Bay and Sarajevo,   The Black Pin   is already receiving critical acclaim in the Balkans and in mainland Europe. It is clear that exciting times lay ahead in the Montenegrin film industry, and with the success of   The Black Pin , Ivan hopes to be a standard bearer for bringing Montenegrin film into the mainstream.
