Dragan Bjelogrlić – Serbia, Slovenia, Montenegro, North Macedonia 2023 – 120 minutes – spoken language: French, Serbian, with English subtitles

October 1958, the Cold War is at its peak. A group of young communist scientists get irradiated with a lethal dose of uranium. They are sent to Paris for medical treatment by Prof Mathé. Certain that they were making a nuclear weapon, Mathé proposes the first-ever human bone marrow transplant. Is it an experiment with living humans or does he truly want to help them?

Guardians of the Formula is based on the novel Vinča Case by Goran Milašinovićm, inspired by a true story.

Director’s note: The world is divided ideologically. The world is divided economically. Once again, we are on the brink of a great war. Only humanity and empathy can save us. In this movie I explored how the formula of death can become the formula of life.

This film is preceded by a film from our Eco Shorts competition: Fár by Gunnur Martinsdóttir Schlüter (Dutch premiere in 2023 – Iceland – 5 minutes)
Anna’s primal instinct gets triggered when a seagull crashes into a cafe’s window and her tightly controlled way of life.

This month Movie W shows films from the Sprouts Film Festival Program on four Wednesday evenings.
About Sprouts Film Festival: In times of a glitching world, with weather extremes and inhumane conflicts intensifying, it can be tempting to avert your gaze. Instead, Sprouts wants to make the cinema a site for peaceful protest by showing newly released ecocinema and socially critical debut films. All selected features and shorts are fiction, because it is our belief that through the power of
imagination we can alter our behaviour for the better and rethink our relationship with the more-than-human world. We are here to make you wonder, to inform, to spark resistance and to nurture fresh talent.
