Film director

Zdravko Šotra (born 13 February 1933 in Stolac, Littoral Banovina, Kingdom of Yugoslavia) is a Herzegovinian Serb film and television director and screenwriter. Šotra started out during the early 1960s as a television director employed by TV Belgrade. Already a prominent TV director, 46-year-old Šotra made his feature film debut in 1979 with Osvajanje slobode, a post-World War II story written by Gordan Mihić about a cultural and infrastructural rebuilding effort in the small Serbian town. He came back two years later with a folksy comedy Šesta brzina starring Zoran Radmilović. The following year, 1982, Šotra revisited the post-war theme with Idemo dalje, starring Dragan Nikolić as a World War II young Partisan transitioning into his new life as a schoolteacher as the war is coming to an end. In 1983 came the spectacular World War II drama Igmanski marš, a high-budget project of the partisan film genre. In the late 1970s, Šotra married the former beauty queen Nikica Marinović, fourteen years his junior. Together they have a son Marko who is a television director employed at the Serbian state television.  ( Wikipedia article )
