Svadba — Wedding by Ana Sokolović.

An intoxicating a cappella tour de force, sung in Serbian with English surtitles. The night before a wedding, girlfriends prepare the bride-to-be for her impending marriage. The text is taken from original Serbian poetry. The scenes unfold, not in a linear narrative, but in a playful interconnection animated through drama, distilling magic and fantasy from ordinary moments.
