“…one of the most unflinching and controversial portraits of teenage lust, longing, anguish, and rebellion ever captured on camera. I haven’t been able to forget it since.”
James Kaelan, MovieMaker Magazine, Spring 2013 Issue
LOS ANGELES (April 29, 2013) – Artsploitation Films, the rising American film label that continues to deliver edgy international movies to North American audiences announces the company will begin distributing its acclaimed films in the U.S. though Kino Lorber beginning with Maja Miloš’ award winning CLIP on June 11, 2013.
CLIP is a dynamic, disturbing portrait of contemporary Serbian youth. Jasna, played fearlessly by Isidora Simijonovic, is a pretty girl in her mid-teens. With a terminally ill father and dispirited mother at home, she is disillusioned by her unglamorous life in a dismal Belgrade suburb. Opposing everyone, including herself, she experiments with sex, drugs and partying. A close collaboration between Miloš and her precocious ingénue, Isadora Simijonovic, CLIP is a raw, unflinching look at the perilous world of a rootless teenager in the line of Larry Clark’s KIDS, a film centered on the daily lives of a group of sexually active teenagers in the mid-90s New York City.
Writer/Director Maja Miloš makes her directorial debut in this searing portrait of modern Serbia. This stunning first film won the Grand Jury Prize at this year’s International Film Festival of Rotterdam. It won Best Director honors for Miloš at the Transylvania International Film Festival. It won the White Iris Award at the Brussels European Film Festival and the Kingfisher Award at the Ljubljana International Film Festival. It also played the Toronto International Film Festival, Montreal’s Festival du Noveau Cinema, The Chicago International Film Festival and AFI Fest in Los Angeles respectively.

CLIP – SYNOPSIS
In CLIP, Jasna, a teenage Serbian girl, grapples with random sexual encounters and an uncertain future. With her father plagued by illness, Jasna is left with nothing to help her navigate her world other than her camera phone and a strong desire to capture clips of her life speeding by. With her young and courageous cast, Miloš crafts an uncensored, sexually frank and ferociously honest portrait of modern youth. As Jasna rushes to leave her adolescence behind, she takes on a life of aimless wandering that appears lonely and precarious, but somehow she maintains control of this wild ride.
