In August 1911, Serbian producer Svetozar Botoric and Louis de Beery (former Pathé’s cinematographer) left Belgrade to film a country wedding. With the bridal procession of 300 guests bringing together all the social classes of the time, we follow the young married couple step by step : at home, then at the wedding luncheon beneath the old oak trees, and finally smiling at the party that presents a really beautiful account of Kolo, a traditional Serbian dance. This film is one of the treasures of the Ignaz Reinthaler collection, which is held in Filmarchiv Austria. Director: Louis de BEERY Nationality: Serbian Length: 18' 5" Genre: documentary Sound: silent with soundtrack Original elements: black & white Producer: Svetozar Botoric Composer: Eric Le Guen Original languages: Serbian, English
