One of the most internationally awarded Croatian documentaries in the last few years and the most debated one that still is a matter of controversies at home, deals with the hatred within ethnic groups in Croatia. The director courageously digs in the wounds of the post-war society.
The film will be introduced by director Nebojsa Slijepcevic and the producer Vanja Jambrovic, followed by Q&A with the director.


Oliver Frljic is the most controversial theatre director in the territory of former Yugoslavia, especially in Croatia. His play deals with murder of a family of Serbian ethnicity during the war years in Zagreb, which at the time was a matter of huge disputes and political riots. The documentary uses this play as a vehicle to open up the sensitive topic of multi ethnic tolerance, the judicial system, human rights and provides a way to look at the Croatian society today. Rehearsals become a collective psychotherapy and the 12-year-old actress Nina who interprets the murdered 12 year old Aleksandra, feels as if the war has never ended. This disturbing, brilliantly made documentary travelled the whole world, won many awards a.o. Heart of Sarajevo as well as a prestigious award at Vision du Reel in Nyon.
