Ammunition for the Virgin received funding from the Ministry of Culture, Serbia


Melissa Potter’s film project, Ammunition for the Virgin has been awarded generous support from the Ministry of Culture, Serbia. Ammunition for the Virgin is a 20-minute video animation project in progress focusing on diverse young women in FR Yugoslavia and their choices today in contrast with Stana Cerovic, the reported “last sworn virgin” in Montenegro. In a rare Balkan tradition, Stana Cerovic took an oath to be raised as a boy and forsake marriage in order to inherit family property. Interviews with women have been conducted the Youth Initiative for Human Rights, former students from the Fine Arts Academy, a graffiti artist, and the Roma community.
