Contributions to Milčo Mančevski’s biography:

    My first encounter with the Milčo Mančevski’s work was in the 1981: it was on the pages of the Jukebox magazine, where he published some texts. But, let’s make this clear: Jukebox was a magazine that treated the popular music and the popular mass-culture.
