I’m happy I can get a shot of Russian vaccine & escape this ‘prison’, self-isolating filmmaker Kusturica tells RT
Famous Serbian film director Emir Kusturica can’t wait to get a jab against Covid-19, preferably with the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, and stop being so anxious about catching the disease, he told RT.
Like many others, the 66-year-old filmmaker found his life significantly changed due to the pandemic. Previously a regular traveler due to his work and fame, he now spends much time at his country home, limiting outside contacts as much as possible to avoid the infection.
“For the first time I am staying here for long periods of time. And I must tell you [sometimes] I feel like I am in a prison,” he said, speaking from Mecavnik, an ethno-village he had constructed as a set piece for his 2004 drama ‘Life Is a Miracle’.
