25.08.2020 15:44

On the second festival day in Opatija we will be watching nine movies, of which three are world premieres. Two movies will be shown as the part of the “State of emergency” program – Golden Dawn Girls and Long Live Bulgaria. 

Tuesday is a day for a small break after the grand opening but, for the audience, it is even richer because it is an opportunity to watch a greater number of movies. 

In the program for the competition, which starts at 8:15 pm, we are watching today three premieres. Feature-length film from Jadran Boban That Other Village is a story about the village Španovica, which is situated about half a way between Pakrac and Požega. The wars have evicted the domicile population from the village. The Second World War has evicted Croats and the Homeland war the Serbs. Today in that village lives a dozen people. With the movie, Boban points out at the fact that people will always find a way to justify their sacrifice but have no understanding for the sacrifice of “others”. There will be the premiere of two other short footage movies – 5,4 from Lucija Ana Iljić and Marko Modrić who bring their interpretation of the earth wake which strongly hit Zagreb, and the area around, on the 22ndof March this year and Echoes by Matija Đuzel who looks at the empty space of The Mall of Istria which has closed its doors in Pula four years ago. 

In the first slot we are also watching Porvenir by Renata Poljak who has travelled to the bottom of the globe to the village Porvenir (in Spanish means future) which was, at the beginning of the 20thcentury, established by Croatian migrants. The second program block brings three short footage movies – Catamine by Sunčica Ana Veldić, Vacant Hours by Mate Ugrin and I still don’t know by Bela Bračko Milešević.  

Today, from the program State of Emergency, which is the part of the program of European Capital of Culture – Rijeka 2020, you have a chance to watch two movies. At 6 pm in Villa Antonio we are projecting the political insider thriller Golden Dawn Girls from Norwegian director Håvard Bustnes who is dealing with controversial Greek political party Golden Dawn, more precisely, women who have continued to propagate politics and ideas of their fathers, husbands and sons after their imprisoning. The program on the little Summer Stage will be closed tonight with the movie Long Live Bulgaria by Adele Peeva who has decided to deal with extreme beliefs from the perspective of youth. 

We are bringing the Norwegian movies to LFF with the support from the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway in the Republic of Croatia.
