Petar Krelja (1940) is one of Croatia’s leading documentary filmmakers, as well as an acclaimed film critic, and a longtime editor of film programme on Channel 1 of Croatian Radio (former Radio-Zagreb). 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.
