Early Works (Serbian: Rani radovi, Cyrillic: Рани радови) is a 1969 Yugoslavian film by Serbian author Želimir Žilnik. It critically depicts the aftermath of the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia. It won the Golden Bear at the 19th Berlin International Film Festival in 1969.[1]

The title was borrowed from the popular anthology of the early work by Marx and Engels published first in Yugoslavia in 1953. These early texts had a significant influence on the development of the Yugoslav Praxis School of philosophy. The title was chosen ironically[citation needed] as a comment on the discrepancy between the theory, as expressed by Marx and Engels in their work, and practice, as implemented by the Soviet Union and other countries of real socialism[citation needed].
