He signed more than forty scenarios, among which The Dog Who Liked Trains, The Deceptive Summer of 68, and Someone else's America, all three directed by Goran Paskaljević, but it is with Emir Kusturica that his collaboration will be the most brilliant, with the Time of the Gypsies, Black Cat, White Cat.
