Deutche Film und Fernsehakademie Berlin, German academy for film and television, is currently in Dubrovnik, filming student documentary film named „The colour nude“.

Dubrovnik erotic photographer, Stijepo Brbora spent two day shooting recognizable local scenes in which appeared Vesna Knežević, a Belgrade-based writer/reporter. The intention of this shoot was to represent women's beauty no matter the age. She is portraying a character from Držić plays – Laura.

Dubrovnik is ideal for this kind of work because of its natural beauty and architectural complexity. In period of two days, they used the locations of the City walls, churches, the House of Marin Držić and the Sponza Palace. Some might say that this kind of art shouldn't be filmed in churches, but Brbora claims that this is all perceived as an art form.

The movie should see the light of day at the end of this year, and there are going to be two versions – the student one and the one intended for the Festival screening. Film staff also includes producer Elisabeth Koeller and cinematographer Alina Albrecht.
