n its second edition, Sonar – the Free Zone youth program – focuses on how travel and adventure are filmed and presented in the world of web documentaries. How much time, money and technology do we need to tell a story on the go? And what are the benefits of showing the story retrospectively?

The main theme of this year’s Sonar is drawing a parallel between what we want to record and what we want to keep only for ourselves, existing in the abstract space of our minds. In the world of social networks, where it’s quite normal to share your every step, Sonar aims to find a filter regarding the steps that should be shared and those that shouldn’t. Does constant presence in virtual space contradict the ideology of “living in the moment”? Does recording of our each and every moment affect the personal experience of the adventure, how positive or negative is that influence, and does the need for memory in modern society automatically mean the need for public publication?

The guests of this year’s program will help us with answering these questions – Igor Šćepanović Šćepa and Radovan Kovač – two adventurers who record and share their experiences on social networks, but in two completely different ways. As a preparation for the further story, the introductory part of the program will be dedicated to Šćepa’s editing workshop in motion, where participants will have the opportunity to learn editing techniques that he uses in his documentary expression. The main program will follow – screenings of the works of both authors – and after that, program selectors Lena Trifunović and Tamara Milošević will lead a discussion with the authors, in which, through the analysis of their works and the story of their past experiences, we will try to discover what nature can reveal to us and why it is important to be adventurous in the digital age.

The goal of Sonar is to build a relationship with what surrounds us at a time when we absorb most of the content unconsciously and when many things pass unnoticed. The only question is: are you ready to activate the sonar?


Igor Šćepanović Šćepa is a programmer, one of the founders of the publishing house Glitch Records, bass player of a band Organizam, and a DJ. Besides all of that, whenever he finds some time off, he tours the world on his bicycle. So far he has visited 14 countries. Among all these adventures and quite by chance, under the name Šćepine Vragolije, he started filming and promoting cycling documentaries shot in a vertical format. With them, he is bringing people together around content full of humor, beautiful landscapes and spontaneous moments. Since he started riding long tours more seriously, he has had several big trips, including a circle around Crete, a diagonal across the Alps, winding through Morocco and a straight line through Iceland. All previous and future episodes of Šćepa’s content are promoted through his Instagram profile, encouraging interaction and motivation.


Radovan Kovač, born on August 12th, 1984 in Kula, completed his elementary and high school education – as a mechanical technician – in his hometown. He graduated from the University of Economics and obrained his MA in European Politics. He got engaged in video production back in 2016 and in 2019 he came up with the idea of making the Challenge Adventure show. The first episode took place on Stara Planina. Today, two and a half years later, his show contains 44 episodes. In the episodes, he introduces the world of mountaineering, camping, cycling, alpinism, rafting, and kayaking to the public and shows the unknown natural beauties. His objective is to encourage and motivate people to have an active lifestyle and spend more time in nature.
