Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Slobodan Šijan (born November 16, 1946, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) is a Serbian film director. After graduating film direction and directing a handful of TV movies in the late 1970s, he caught a big break with his first full-length feature Ko to tamo peva in 1980. The enormous success of that film written by Dušan Kovačević led to the duo collaborating on another project - 1982's Maratonci trče počasni krug, which also achieved considerable critical and commercial success. Over the coming years Šijan directed two more notable films - Kako sam sistematski uništen od idiota and Davitelj protiv davitelja. As of 2001, he is teaching at Loyola Marymount University film school. His favorite movie is Howard Hawks' Rio Bravo (1959).
