The Adventure Begins in Cinema Tuškanac
Take Me Somewhere Nice is a fitting name for the beginning of the biggest Zagreb film adventure. The winner of Sarajevo Film Festival directed by Ena Sendijarević, one of the films in the competition program of the 17th ZFF, will be screened at 9.30 am and 8 pm in Tuškanac Cinema. In this absurdist road movie, which critics are comparing to Jim Jarmusch films, three young rebels embark on an unpredictable journey through Bosnia’s colorful heartland.
The program Bib for Kids, aimed at our youngest audience, starts at 12 pm at Tuškanac Cinema with the film Phantom Owl Forest. This adventure family film by Anu Aun revolves around a 10-year-old girl whose parents are too busy and never have enough time for her.
The popular side program Together Again at 5 pm in Tuškanac Cinema brings the new film by Taika Waititi, who already thrilled ZFF’s audience with his goofy comedies. Jojo Rabbit, winner of the people’s choice award at the Toronto Film Festival, is a recognizable mix of humor and pathos in a story about a lonely boy Jojo growing up in World War II Germany along with his imaginary friend Adolf Hitler.
Cultural Center Travno also opens its doors with the film Alice and the Mayor which opened the 17th ZFF.
The topic of the new side program Fragments from the Exile is the always actual question of migrations which continues to reach new peaks. Moonlighting (KIC Hall, 7 pm), directed by Jerzy Skolimowski starring Jeremy Irons, is a film about a group of Polish workers illegally working in London.
The program in the KIC Hall continues at 9 pm with the Festivals in the Spotlight which in collaboration with the Mediterranean Film Festival Split presents The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea, a film by Syllas Tzoumerkas about two lonely women in western Greece, whose lives begin intertwining after secrets are discovered hidden in a swamp.
The day ends with another film from the Together Again program. The award-winning author of Rams, Grímur Hákonarson’s film The County (Tuškanac Cinema, 10.30 pm) once again looks under the surface of rural Icelandic communities. This time, the story revolves around a rebellious middle-aged heroine, thanks to which many have compared the film to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missoury.
