Petrovic blended peasant folklore and libertarian idealism in Skupljaci Perja/ I Even Met Happy Gypsies (1967), shot by Tomislav Pinter, starring famous singer Olivera Katarina and gypsy characters played by real gypsies speaking in their own language, and in Bice Skoro Propast Sveta/ The End of the World Is Near/ It Rains in My Village (1968), a tragic love story set in an isolated village.
