This documentary zooms in on the Serbian Exit Festival, the people behind it and their continuing struggle to organize a wide variety of events under difficult circumstances. Counter culture as a means of progress in society.
The Exit Festival was first held in 2000, as a student protest against president Slobodan Milosevic's politics. This unique festival still plays a crucial part in building a new Serbia via the means of counter culture. Even though nowadays the biggest stars are rocking the numerous stages in the fortress, Exit has not turned into a commercial mainstream event as it is still based on the ideals and beliefs of the founders.
The States of Exit features several Exit originators like founder Bojan Boskovic and programmer Rajko Bozic. For the first time ever, they tell their stories in a dedicated Exit documentary. "Over the course of thirteen years, we have generated probably between 200 and 250 million euros for the Serbian economy. In comparison, the oil industry of Serbia was sold for 400 million."
