Emir Kusturica and Orthodoxy

Emir Kusturica Bruxelles05.jpgOn Đurđevdan (St. George's Day) in 2005, he was baptised into the Serbian Orthodox Church as Nemanja Kusturica (Немања Кустурица) at the Savina monastery near Herceg Novi, Montenegro.[36][37] To his critics who considered this the final betrayal of his Bosniak roots, he replied that:

My father was an atheist and he always described himself as a Serb. OK, maybe we were Muslim for 250 years, but we were Orthodox before that and deep down we were always Serbs, religion cannot change that.[5][36][38]
Despite the aforementioned conflict of religion, Kusturica refused to see himself as either a Bosniak or Serb. Instead, he had continued to insist that he was simply a Yugoslav.[35]
Kusturica has said that when his mother was on deathbed, he wanted to find out his ancestry; he found out from books that the origin of the Kusturica family stem from two Orthodox Christian lines.[39] He traced his family origin before the conversion to Islam, to the Babić family, precisely to a Kusturica that helped build the Arslanagić bridge in the 18th century, that hailed from Bileća (he took the surname Kusturica when Islamized).[40] Аccording to scholar Jevto Dedijer (1880–1918), when he researched the Bileća region (1902): the Kusturica family lived in a čopor (grouped area, literally "pack") in the village of Plana; they had eight houses next to the Kozjak family (four houses), northwest across a field from the Avdić family (23 houses).[41] In Granica, there was a family surnamed Kusturica which had left Plana 80 years earlier.[41] Avdija Krivokapić, an Islamized Montenegrin and progenitor of the Avdić family, reportedly was honoured by the Sultan for his military service; on the way home to Herzegovina, in Kyustendil, he bought a gypsy and brought him to Plana; this gypsy was allegedly an ancestor of the Kusturica family.[41]
