THE PURSUER

The film reveals the thoughts of a small man, living in the 1980s. He defines himself as a pathetic cad, leading a pathetic intelligent life. His job at a state-run office is to fire choir singers, who are about to retire. The clerk is not happy with this miserable existence, but whatever he does, there is always some early bird who gets his worm. This early bird is his alter ego, his inner voice, which he has always silenced. A psychological drama about the lost meaning, the lovelessness, the paranoia in a frustrated life.

FORECAST

Margarita leaves famous reporter Marco Matanich and joins her brother going for windsurfing with his friends from different Balkan countries. They speak their own languages, but understand each other pretty well. Marco arrives on their island “only” for the surfboard she stole from him. Meanwhile a dead calm succeeds. Lacking their mania, the men start fighting over the usual nationalistic issues. Now they speak only English, to “better understand each other”.

The friends build “national borders” between their tents while Margarita disappears in the open sea. Will the men find her and will everyone find peace?

AGAINST THE STREAM

The largest river in Europe, the Danube, takes its sources from Germany and, after crossing 8 European countries, flows into the Black Sea. Virtuoso musicians from the countries along the Danube met onboard a ship. They sailed upstream in order to play the music springing from the native customs and traditions of their nations. In the language of music they managed to efface the boundaries, either actual or imaginary, which still exist in the minds of people.
