NICOLAS WAGNIÈRES * 1971 in Lausanne. Nicolas Wagnières trained as a building draughtsman and attended the ESBA (École Supérieure des Beaux Arts) from 2001–2005. HOTEL JUGOSLAVIJA is his first feature film, celebrated its world premiere at the São Paulo International Film Festival and was then selected for the Berlinale Panorama and the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival.

Yugoslavia no longer exists, but Hotel Jugoslavija is still haunting the Belgrade scenery, like a mirror held out to a Serbia in search of new landmarks. Nicolas Wagnières explored the building at different eras and questioned its former residents. The result is a singular space-time continuum projecting a form of collective unconscious and a share of the director’s identity.
