The Beat of Love (Utrip Ljubezni)
Presented by the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia and the Slovenian Film Centre
New York premiere. Slovenia. Dir. Boris Petkovic. 2015, 77 mins. In Slovenian with English subtitles. With Judita Frankovic, Jernej Gasperin, Zlatan Cordic Zlatko. This infectious ode to Slovenia’s hip-hop subculture bursts with music and energy. Bruno (Jernej Gasperin) and his friends live for hip-hop—the tagging, the beatboxing, and the rap battles. After winning a freestyle competition, Bruno seems to be on the path to success. But when he falls for violinist Nina (Judita Frankovic) he finds himself torn between love and music. A winning blend of rap, romance, and comedy, The Beat of Love captures the highs, lows, and intoxicating abandon of youth.
