Abstract This article retraces three levels of intelligibility of the communist adventure of Titoism as they appear in Emir Kusturica's Underground (1995). Firstly, it identifies the role played by propaganda inside the Yugoslav political regime. Secondly, it examines the way the power relations having shaped the history of the second Yugoslavia are pictured by Kusturica’s film. Finally, it analyses the organization of the fictitious space of Underground as a specific technique of construction, that is, of modification of the identity of the inhabitants.
