A family gathering takes a strange turn when the daughter appears with a bruise on her eye and a cliché excuse. Dutch Premiere


Silence hurts more than bruises. Once she was daddy’s little girl, but now she’s sitting in front of him with her husband and a bruise on her eye. What is a father supposed to do, if there is nothing he can do? A well-directed short by promising Croatian director Filip Peruzovic. As part of omnibus ‘’Deep Cuts’’ dealing with violence in all its form, the film was screened at the Sarajevo Film Festival, and Pula Film Festival where it won the Golden Arena for Best Cinematography.
