Having to wear a fake smile for a living is clearly eating on Maxim. A photo next to a GDR soldier at Checkpoint Charlie is a Berlin tourist’s favorite souvenir.

Boris Hadžija, born in Yugoslavia in 1990, earned his Bachelor’s degree at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad and continued with his Master’s studies in classical piano at the University of Arts in Belgrade. After starting his career as a concert pianist, he studied film directing – first at the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU) in Prague/Czech Republic and continued at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB). His short fiction and documentary films were selected by various international film festivals and were broadcasted in television.
