Over at the blog Cracked Two, there are some very cool photos of old structures that were built in former Yugoslavia in the ’60s and ’70s. Commissioned by former President Josip Broz Tito, these super structures were built at sites where great injustice took place during WWII, ranging from internment camps, to massacres, etc. Designed by various sculptors and architects, they were made to represent the great might of the Social Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their “patriotic education.” After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost.
These structures are pretty dilapidated and aged over time, which makes them even more ominous and something out of our “future’s past.” I don’t know about you, but I think YOMYOMF Films should head over to the former Yugoslav region (now broken up into independent states such as Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Slovenia, etc.) and shoot a sci-fi movie. Check out the rest….
