Film as a medium of expression and film in which the structure plays the dominant role were the most widespread in the 1960s and 1970s in Belgrade. The films of Zoran Popović, Slobodan Šijan, and Ljubomir Šimunić explored diverse visual structures. Vjekoslav Nakić, Nikola Djurić, and Radoslav Vladić created films with pure structures and atmospheres. Ivan Obrenov and Bojan Jovanović, through the predominant postmodernist style of their works, again began to pose questions related to the topics of unfinished revolutions and neocolonialism. And at the beginning of the 1980s, Miroslav Bata Petrović would deal with the results of the materialist approach to film. (Miodrag Miša Milošević)
