Zasto ne Govorim Srpski (na Srpskom) or Why I Don’t Speak Serbian (in Serbian) is a compelling short film from Turner Prize nominated artist Phil Collins, considering the complex relationship between language and conflict. Filmed in Kosovo, it relays the personal stories of public figures and ordinary people, discussing the collective shift to abandon the Serbo-Croat language.

Phil Collins will discuss the film before introducing the Arena portrait of poet, thief and troublemaker extraordinaire Jean Genet. Pinpointed by Collins as a key inspiration for his practice, Saint Genet (1985) presents a formidable character who thrillingly challenges the nature of documentary subjectivity.
