Velike pakosti malih ljudi

Viktor in DC


Obično kažu da se pametni i ispunjeni ljudi ne osvrću na loše stvari, i to je verovatno tačno. Postoji i razlog za to – previše je dobrih stvari na putu ispred svakoga od nas da bismo se zamajavali onime što ne možemo promeniti.

Ipak, nakon više od godinu dana ćutnje odlučio sam da stavim tačku na jednu vrlo bolnu priču u mom životu koja zaista može da posluži kao nauk drugim ljudima, naročito studentima Fakulteta dramskih umetnosti, koji sam i ja svojevremeno studirao.

Nikada u životu nisam imao toliko problema samo zbog toga što sam iznosio svoje mišljenje, ili još apsurdnije – govorio istinu, nego tokom godina dok sam studirao na katedri za Filmsku i televizijsku produkciju na FDU.

Pre par godina sam objavio “sporni” blog o održavanju “za nabosti” događaja u filmskom studiju na fakultetu, u kom je takođe bilo pomena o rang listi ljudi koji su bili na…

The classroom was in a town called Norrköping, where officials have reportedly logged 60 cases of FGM since March of this year.

Although Sweden outlawed FGM in 1982, it doesn’t appear these girls are indigenous Swedes, anyway. Both Sweden’s The Local and England’s The Independent very carefully tiptoe around the…
