Leka Konstantinovic was the personal film projectionist of Yugoslavia's President Josip Broz Tito for 32 years. In that period he showed Tito a total of 8801 films. Along with Yugoslav directors, film stars and studio bosses he tells the story of how Marshal Tito (1892-1980) gave form to post-war Yugoslavia, while at the same time using the film industry to create the narrative of the new country. Using footage from dozens of forgotten Yugoslav films, this film tells the story of Yugoslavia the way it was never told on screen. Pulling together exclusive behind-the-scenes archive it recreates the story of a country that may itself have been a fiction.

She studied politics and media at the LSE in London, and specialised in documentary filmmaking at La Femis in Paris, and with Academy-Award winner Tony Schwartz in New York.
