Violated sex : rape, nation and representation of female characters in Yugoslav new film and black wave cinema

Abstract
The aim of this study is to reveal how women are represented in the Yugoslav New Film and Black Wave films. I argue that they show a recurring pattern of rape. I interpret a raped woman in Yugoslav films as an allegory of a raped nation. To investigate this motif, I have selected three fiction films, all addressing a short pro-Stalinist phase of Yugoslav history: Lisice/Handcuffs (Krsto Papić 1969), Uloga moje porodice u svjetskoj revoluciji/The Role of my Family in the World Revolution (Bahrudin Bato Čengić, 1971), and Doručak sa đavolom/Breakfast with the Devil (Miroslav Mika Antić, 1971). In my investigation I will draw on feminist film scholarship as the conceptual framework. Furthermore, I use close reading as the method to explore the movement's oeuvre.
