Another new trend in Belgrade and around the world is the commercialisation of graffiti. On the one hand, this commercialisation threatens the idea of subversive provocation – but on the other hand, it allows the artists to earn from their work. Some artists create to order, others sell their works to galleries and commonly these payments will support their future work, lifestyle and non-commercial projects. The end justifies the means. Nevertheless, the dominant trend is global connectivity – this is supported by increasingly numerous festivals and exhibitions dedicated to street art.
Check Passed: No Mines (Yugoslavian title Provereno nema mina ; Russian title Provereno - min net ) is a 1965 Yugoslavian-Soviet war movie directed by Yuriy Lysenko and Zdravko Velimirovic. In October 1944 Belgrade is liberated from the Wehrmacht troops. Soviet and Yugoslavian soldiers perform mine clearance in the city. A mixed group under the command of Yugoslavian Lt. Rade encounters the presence of Germans in the Belgrade sewers. A prisoner tells that only an hour left before the saboteurs would explode the water reservoir damb that would lead to great disasters all over the city. Having no time to wait for the reinforcements, the group takes the mission to save the city on themselves.
