Rade Sherbedgia – Bepi the Poet

Born in Bunic, he is a refined poet and singer-songwriter, but above all one of the most well-known actors from former Yugoslavia. In the 1990’s he moved to London and then to the United States, where he started working in Hollywood productions, winning roles in successful films and TV series, until building a solid international career. Noteworthy among his performances are: Before the Rain (1994) by Milčo Mančevski (Golden Lion at the 51st Venice International Film Festival), La tregua (1997) by Francesco Rosi, Eyes Wide Shut (1998) by Stanley Kubrick and Fugitive Pieces by Jeremy Podeswa, which he won the Marco Aurelio award for best actor at the Film Festival in Rome.
