Igor Bezinović at IFFR
In 2009 in Croatia, students joined farmers in a demonstration for the first time. Although major media were present, this is the only video which documents that encounter.
A Brief Excursion
A group of Croatian friends trek through a barren landscape in searing heat, following Roko – half schlemiel, half Messiah. Narrator Stola provides a bone-dry commentary on this symbolic journey toward adulthood. A thoughtful authentic portrait of contemporary thirtysomethings dazed and confused by generation gaps, a sense of unbelonging and the elusiveness of freedom.
