documentary / 2007 / length: 59′ / format: HDV
The film follows life destinies of eight people with Macedonian and Croatian origin each living in the others’ country. The film analyzes the lives of mainly young individuals who have more or less fulfilled themselves in a socially, religiously and culturally different environment by opening the issues of identity, connection with the environment they come from, cultural and religious differences and the relation of society to the individual.
“The film offers an answer to the question why Croats move to Macedonia and vice-versa. Interestingly, this analysis has shown that Croatian emigrants came to Macedonia about 40 years ago, whereas Macedonians have tended to move to Croatia in the past 15 years in search for better life. This is an indicator of the conditions we live in this country,” director Stavreski says.
He adds that the film story touches some really intimate and painful experiences of the characters to the effect of a perfect film owed to their open mindedness and sincerity. After the opening, the film will be put on the regular term programme of Frosina between 21st to 27th June.
