The Heroine’s Journey of Vesna Bejic

The best thing that I love about my work is freedom. I have the feeling that I live my real life …even if it ‘s not my real life at all …because I have another job. I’m a teacher and this job attaches me to reality and obligations but this job of teaching allows me to produce my own creations in total freedom. “Yes we can” is a marvelous feeling. I paid for it and that’s giving the value to the passion.

My idea of happiness is to have an idea of a movie and to make it s true. Everyday I have an idea of a movie but I realized just two short movies. The process to realize need money, people, locations…it’s a miracle when the idea achieves a form. You always push the limits and it’s a gratification when we succeed.

My greatest fear is to lose the energy of love. Without love we do nothing in life.

The trait that I most deplore in myself is selfishness. I take time to do what I ‘ve to do like you can see…

I admire Wim Wenders and Emir Kusturica because they ‘re artists who make films when they have to tell something and they know to stop when they don’t have any more to tell…It’s deeply honest …That’s art more than a job…

My greatest extravagance is to think that I could succeed in what I want.

I would lie to find some producers…but usually people see when I lie…I couldn’t be an actress or I need to believe in my lies…maybe one day…

I dislike the most in my work when I don’t find the words to be in harmony with my team.

I was the happiest in my work when the film was finished and I saw people watch my movie and give some comments, even critics… When the baby is here, it’s the most wonderful thing in the world…

If I could, what would I change about myself...I would like to be younger to make more that I have done…

I don’t have achievements in work and everything…I have so much to learn…spatially I have to improve my narration in movies…

I live between three countries Serbia, France and Corsica..it’s enough…

My most treasured possession is people around me, my family, my friends and of course my love.

My most marked characteristic is that I have a lot of contradictions. I like security and adventure…passion and quietness …something from childhood…

The place where I think the most about movies is the cinema…watching others movies, some ideas for myself are coming…I note and continue to watch films…usually without links with what I see…it’s just a dynamic in a dark room…

My favorite place to eat and drink is in the street like Americans…not lose time…

My favorite book is The Adrien’s Memories because it’s an introspection which pushes everyone to stop and to think about their own life and what He was and are. Marguerite Duras is an musicienne from words…I like her too. Now I read John Kennedy Toole…a very intelligent writer too…how no editor was interested in him…it’s a mystery …

For my last day...the sound of the silence  like the song…is my best music

In real life my heroes are doctors and people who work in hospitals. They are so badly paid and they do so much for others.

l’Atalante is an old movie so poetic, full of childhood…Everybody should see it once in a lifetime…specially before making a movie…I love this movie…maybe more than Chaplin…Wings of Desire is one of my favorites too.

I would like to work with Gaumont production…of course…

I would like in 2022 to create a documentary film about an aunt who dies very strangely in a small village in Serbia.I would like to make another short movie with my beautiful actress Gwendolyn Gourvenec, who played in my first short movie…She had so much dignity and beauty in herself. I would like another film with her. She’s a very nice person. Ilove nice people with nice energy.

You can  contact the actress and nurse in life Marie Joséphine Roignant. I admire her because she acts and works in a hospital like a nurse saving lives… a heroine…a real one…You can see her one the picture with Gwendolyn Gourvenec.
