SKOPJE: Macedonian director Igor Ivanov started shooting his new feature film Homo as a coproduction between Macedonia, Bulgaria, Serbia, Slovenia and Kosovo on 13 March 2019. A five-week shooting schedule is planned, including more than 20 locations in Skopje.
Six entirely different stories about six characters from Skopje intertwine here and now. Through the labyrinth of the disintegrated society, their destinies change forever. Each story has a separate title according to the main character of the story, borrowed from the terminology used by philosophic anthropology, trying to define the specifics of humanity. Igor Ivanov wrote the script together with Sašo Kokalanov.

Serbian DoP Maja Radošević is lensing. The budget is around 1 m EUR, with 682,926 EUR coming from the Macedonian Film Agency.
