On one side of the border the village of Gunja is located, and on the other the little town of Brčko, which has the status of district in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The two are connected by a bridge crossed daily in both directions by many people and large groups of school kids, without any particular formalities.

He graduated in world literature from the Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb and has been engaged in film since the end of the 1960s. In the 1970s he became known as an author of emotionally engaged documentaries on social outsiders, particularly children and young people. Among his feature films the most prominent is Train Southward (1981), a comedy about the life of inhabitants of Novi Zagreb, drawing on the tradition of Krešo Golik.
