Mobitel: a cell phone movie

(Bosnia)

Documentary

Director: Nedzad Begovic

With: Nedzad Begovic, Amina Begovic, Hasiba Begovic, Suleiman Begovic, Naida Begovic, Sabrina Begovic

Running time: 63 min

Description:

 

In 2008, around the same time that he is diagnosed with angina, Begovic invests in a top-of-the-line LG KU990 Viewty, which comes with a high-resolution 5.0-megapixel camera. Advised to walk a lot, he uses the mobile camera during his perambulations over three years and different seasons, capturing some of Sarajevo's sassy street graffiti as well as fellow pedestrians who wouldn't be out of place in the Ministry of Silly Walks.

The way he shoots his family -- wife Amina, daughters Naida and Sabrina, and parents Hasiba and Suleiman -- speaks volumes about his love for them. He even gives humorously tender regard to the family's undergarments flapping on a clothesline, with the appearance of his jokey slogan-sporting T-shirts countering any mawkishness.
