Description

Pacing tourists. Nervous drivers on +40 degrees. Heaps of bodies on the beach. Noise and trash. Croatia – a vacationist country on the peak of tourist season, ready to exploit all options for quick profit… Just a few miles away, in a perfect Zen, people are collecting salt, picking olives and building stonewalls. “Salt, Olive, Stone” is a visual essay on what we have already forgotten. Ode to the work, nature and silence.

  1. Vis à Vis

    Nevio Marasovic / Croatian New Wave Spotlight, World Cinema / Croatia / 2013 / Comedy, Drama / 81 mins
    Rising star director Nevio Maravic, a cross between Woody Allen and a Croatian Alexander Payne, has a relaxed approach to filmmaking. This bittersweet comedy follows a film director and his leading man to the remote island of Vis to work on the script. Due to the isolation they face during the winter, they unexpectedly face their own frustrations which are constantly intertwined with the film's plot! The film is praised for its fantastic scenery and a delightful score by Andrew Bird.
