    Next Year in Lerin

    Jill Daniels is an award- winning British documentary film-maker, whose documentary Next Year in Lerin (2000), tells the story of a group of Macedonian survivors of the Greek Civil War (1944-1949). During this war, the conflict between the Allied supported government and Greek communists led to hundreds of thousands of Macedonian children to be taken from their villages in northern Greece and resettled with foster families and orphanages in neighbouring communist states. These refugee children (known as 'detsa begalci') dispersed as far as Kazakhstan, the Czech Republic, Canada and Australia, later attempted to find their real families . They all wish to visit their birthplace in Greece, yet have been unable to, because of one anomaly in their passports: their birthplace is written as it was known in Macedonian before the war, instead of the now re - named official Greek version.


    Beautifully- shot, the film is a metaphor for voyage: the children's physical voyage from their homes to new families in the 1940s; the emotional voyage in wanting to return home 50 years later and find any trace of their birthplaces; and of Jill Danielsown voyage through Macedonia and Greece.These different voyages culminate in a reunion in Skopje, Macedonia, in 1998.

    In January and February 2011, there will be commemorative 10 year "Directors Cut" screenings of the film in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. These screenings offer a chance to meet Jill Daniels and to learn about the last ethnic-political refugees of the 20th century, still exiled from their homeland.

            This thread was created with the purpose of advertising in Australia, and promised the hard working promoter Zoran Lozevski to put it out there for Macedonians here. I would appreciate it if it can remain as such, and for comments pertaining to the movie, thank you

              Something about the first guy speaking in the above clip.
              I am sure he ended up in the Republic and educated himself in the literary language. But feel it would have more impact if he spoke in his native dialect.
