The Forgotten

Darko Bajić made his film debut Live Broadcast (Direktan prijenos 1982), about a young film director and his friends who were not used to compromise; however, he attracted much more attention with the series Gray Home (Sivi dom, 1986), based on the scenario of the productive Gordan Mihić. The film was made in a real correctional home in Kruševac. The protagonists of the movie are the residents of that home, who at all times try to escape to the city or somewhere much farther but are always returned, with psychological scars that do not heal just like that. The series was quite controversial; both because of the scenes of violence and the thesis that such youth homes are a real hell and that no one there will either remodel or repair them. The serial also introduced the new acting generation, out of which Žarko Laušević, Branislav Lečić, Zoran Cvijanović, Mirjana Joković and  Nikola Kojo, who just left the serial Part Time Job (Rad na određeno vreme), attracted the most attention. Bajić made this series for Televizija Beograd (nowadays called RTS) and got all the necessary conditions that film directors should have; the director of photography was Boris Ortinski, who was also the cameraman of Bajić’s film debut Live Broadcast. The success of the series made him to film a sort of sequel,  the movie The Forgotten (Zaboravljeni, 1988); Mihić wrote the script here again, and the play also took place in a correctional home in Kruševac. The three main characters, Kifla (Srđan Todorović), Tungi (Boris Milivojević) and Dina (Mirjana Joković), and they all seem to have originated from the Grey Home. They are frustrated and without illusions, which is best shown when one weekend they flee to Kruševac and make a real hell there, giving vent to everything that kept them down (that part of the film was made after a true event). The film was premiered at the Pula Film Festival, where Ortinski received the Golden Arena for Photography (he was also awarded at the just-established camera festival Braća Manaki in Bitola), and in the early 1990s, RTS (which was no longer called Televizija Beograd) expanded it into a series of 11 episodes, in which the educator Martin (Mustafa Nadarević) and his family played an important role in addition to the three protagonists mentioned.
