“Perspective visits cities all over ex Yugoslavia, talks with young people about social issues in their environment. We don’t impose them our views; instead we let them to find their own conclusions through dialog. All the time everyone is talking about youth, but Perspective is the only one, or one of the few, that really lets them to express their own feelings and views.”

“Great crew is working on the Perspective project. I think they chose well when it comes to topics and questions, topics that are either muted, or false answers are offered. Perspective is showing the true state of mind of young people in the region. The young are frightened. They are enraged because they want to be different, but their environment is condemns different.”

“Every time I come back from working on Perspective I am full of impressions because I’m surprised about how the youth is thinking, even shocked sometimes. But, even in situations when I recognize narrow-minded views in those young people I don’t want to blame them. Their parents, grandparents are speaking through their mouth, people who are influencing their minds way too much.”

“Perspective is about confronting kids from different backgrounds. Young people are much more intelligent and uncorrupted then us. They demonstrate great courage in front of our cameras talking about their opinions and about what their parents are saying to them. The bravery of young – we should look for it and mine it in this country.”
