Dušan Vojnov (BRD) A long, long time ago in a land far, far away, there was a magnificent forest where a BRD lives. The BRD is a cute, crazy, frank and a blood-thirsty bird. But that little bird wouldn’t insult and annoy the other, nor it would talk with herself today, had it not been for Dušan Vojinov, whose figment of imagination it is.
