Okupacija, 27. slika (Orig.) / 2013 / Croatia, Czech Republic / 71 min

We encounter the controversial Croatian film director Lordan Zafranović in his voluntary exile in Prague. The film follows his rise from a talented outsider to the celebrated Yugoslav director of the acclaimed war film, An Occupation in 26 Pictures, presented at Cannes Competition in 1979.
