Srdjan Dragojevic (Serbia, 1963) debuted as a poet with "Knjiga AKcione Poezije/ The Book of Action Poetry" [1986) and "Cika Kovac Potkiva Bebu" (1988).

His graduation project, Mi Nismo Andeli/ We Are Not Angels (1992), became a hit.

Lepa Sela Lepo Gore/ Pretty Village Pretty Flame (1996), scripted by Vanja Bulic and starring Zivojinovic, a complex clockwork of flashbacks that spans three decades through the Bosnian civil war, is the story of two childhood friends, an ethnic Serb and a Muslim, who end up in two different armies, both victims of atrocities. The Serb is trapped with his fellow fighters inside a tunnel, which becomes an allegory for the divisions between the two sides. Frequent flashbacks show peaceful life under Tito, when the tunnel was first inaugurated.

He was an outspoken critic of Serbia's semi-dictator Milosevic. After Rane/ Wounds (1998), he fled Serbia, but, unable to work in Hollywood, he returned in 2001.

He adapted a famous play by Dusan Kovacevic for Sveti Georgije Ubiva Azdahu/ St George Slays the Dragon (2009).
