Presented by the Consulate General of the Republic of Croatia and the Croatian Audiovisual Centre
Croatia. Dirs. Sara Hribar, Marko Santic. 2018, 71 mins. Digital projection. With Ksenija Marinković, Nataša Dorčić, Doris Šarić-Kukuljica. Feminism, labor history, and fiction meet in the modest Zagreb apartment of Fano, a director who is making a film inspired by his aunt, who worked at a legendary local clothing factory that closed down years ago. Fano is looking to cast a middle-aged actress to play his aunt, and he comes up with the misguided idea of inviting three actresses to his apartment for an audition disguised as a casual get-together. Over wine and cheese, the actresses jockey uncomfortably for position, talk about their personal and professional lives, and find opportunities to pigeonhole Fano in the kitchen to lobby for the part in private. As the casual afternoon unfolds, the film has a lot to say about women and work, and is—fittingly—a great showcase for the talents of its leads, who are among the most respected actresses in Croatia: Ksenija Marinković, Nataša Dorčić, and Doris Šarić-Kukuljica.
