A New Hope 2013
Inspired by the idea that child wonder is one of the common denominators of each and every human, the Jedi Movement organizes the event “A New Hope” in 2013, giving Niš its first ever pop culture event, with the franchise Star Wars at its core.
The event was divided into four segments:
1) A walk of Chewbacca, Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers through the city centre with fans
2) A Star Wars movie marathon in “Kupina” cinema
3) A Star Wars – themed party “Choose your side”
4) A visit to the oncology centre of our local hospital
Around 300 people took part in the 4-day programme. Our movie marathon, supported by the cinema “Kupina” and Branko Krsmanović, was the event’s most popular activity.
Local cult club “Feedback” provided us with the space to organize the Star Wars-themed party. Two true Jedi and musicians, Darko Bošković aka Darkinjo Kida Kewa Crew, our guest from Kraljevo, and Miroslav Petković aka DJ Tjamil, helped various Han Solo-s, Princess Leia-s, Darth Vaders, Stormtroopers, R2DRs, Chewbacca-s and other guests feel at home to the sound of funk, glitch hop, drum and jungle beats.
The final activity, our visit to two heroes, two Jedi of our local oncology unit, made the biggest impact on Jedi Movement members. Nurdor supported our initiative and made it possible to share happiness and joy with two young brave warriors. Their smiles gave our Movement courage, which we use every day on our mission of a great Jedi journey through the galaxy.
