10 Years of Discovering the Best Documentaries for You


Biljana Čakić-Veselić



Biljana Čakič-Veselič was born in 1967 in Vinkovci/Croatia. She graduated from the Academy of Arts of the University of Zagreb (painting). During the war in Croatia she worked as a field correspondent and cameraperson for Croatian national TV company (HTV). Since then she is a permanent associate to desk for documentary programme of the Croatian national TV company.
She helped to organise video workshops for children and young persons in the refugee camps throughout Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Biljana Čakič-Veselič‘s films address minor and often extremely private themes, weaving them together gradually with their social environment. A number of detailed observations, precise and carefully composed images and soundtrack reveal traces of the past which exist underneath the surface. Employing poetic and evocative processions of images, Čakič-Veselič tells her stories in the form of extremely personal studies.
Biljana Čakič-Veselič lives in Ljubljana/Slovenia, where she works as an associate to the desk for documentary programme of the Slovenian national TV company (RTV Slovenija).
