Gucha - Distant Trumpet

by Dusan Milic

Gucha - Distant Trumpet


JULIANA, the 16-year-old daughter of the greatest Serbian trumpet player, SATCHMO, falls in love with ROMEO, a young trumpet player from rival Roma orchestra, Sandokan's Tigers. Satchmo utterly rejects Romeo for his dark complexion and he would do anything to separate the couple and forbid this love. But, as great an admirer of Louis Armstrong, he promises that he will give in and let him have his daughter: Romeo only must outplay Satchmo at the famous trumpet competition - the Gucha Festival. In order to get his love, Romeo must achieve the impossible, he must play better than Juliana's father...


Born in Belgrade in 1969, where he graduated in directing at the College of Performing Arts in 1995, subsequently working as an assistant director on films such as Goran Markovic's 1992 work, »Tito and I«. He has written several screenplays for Emir Kusturica and worked on a television series; he has also produced several low-budget commercials and two music videos for Serbian underground bands. In 2003, his debut feature »Jagoda in the Supermarket« had its world premiere at the Panorama section of the Berlin International Film Festival. »Gucha - Distant Trumpet« is his second feature.
