Women in Film: Sonja Savić

By Olivia Maria Hărşan

Noted and perhaps fetishized for her husky voice and sleek brown hair, cult film actress Sonja Savić, became something of a rebel in Serbia (former Yugoslavia), voicing strong opinions against her nation's political  changes. Born in Čačak, Yugoslavia in 1961, Savić impressed audiences with a series of strong performances throughout the 1980s before turning her focus to addressing cultural matters of her country. She died in 2008, reportedly from a drug overdose.
