Unfortunately, the new right owner is more interested in real estate business than in digitization of the movies from its archive.

That sucks.  :o

It's depressing that a lot of films are "doomed" to be pretty much lost and forgotten, due to lack of availability.

I would tolerate a lot more streaming platforms if they actually made available older TV series and films, but it seems to them nothing exists before the 90's or 80's.
And naturally, foreign genre efforts are not on their radar either.

If these companies are unwilling to license them, or release them in physical media, I wish they would at least consider selling digital downloads of their catalogue, as is.

All assets of the Avala Film, co-producer of the movie, which include 370,000m2 of land, 21,500m2 of ruined studios and office spaces in Belgrade and the vault with more of 200 features was sold for 8 million euros in 2015. The concern was expressed that "movie rights will fall into the hands of those not willing to use them, meaning such films might never be seen again". Now, the buyer wants to build a huge complex worth several hundred million euros on this land but it is still waiting for someone else to pay for the digitization.

BTW, the recent critic of the movie in the Serbian:

Thanks for the info, djvaso.  ;)

It's always disappointing to see how some people treat film as something totally disposable.
Unbelievably, it's relatively frequent to hear about negatives of genre films (especially indie exploitation films) being thrown away in the US by labs and storage spaces. Just a few months ago, I read about someone who ended up rescuing a few negatives from a dumpster on the back of a lab (the reels of one of the films ended up irrevocably damaged in the process, since the cans were open, inside a garbage container, in the sun).

If the current owners have no interest in doing anything, or monetizing those films, at least they should consider parting with them for a minimal fee.
I'm sure the Fondazione Cineteca Italiana would be more than happy to store and preserve these films.

Unfortunately, the movie on our side is lost. Yugoslav Film Archive has only a theatrical copy in condition 5+ (5 is the worst condition).

:o

Here's hoping a better print is around somewhere, maybe in a private collection.
After what happened with Fritz Lang's Metropolis, I'll keep hoping for the best.  :P

Another member and I very recently made fansubs for the German VHS in CG.

Thanks for the heads-up (and for your efforts, Commissario Walter Grandi).  ;)

It's great to see the "community" working to preserve these films.  8)
