'Postcards from Croatia': Croatian shorts in Berlin

Six short films will be featured in a special programme titled “Postcards from Croatia”, held on 9th June at City Kino Wedding in Berlin, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the international recognition of Croatia’s sovereignty. The programme is organized jointly by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre and the Croatian Embassy in Berlin, in collaboration with the shorts/salon programme from Berlin.   

“Like postcards, six short films give us a glimpse of a Croatian past and present: In an almost empty office building a choir - remnant of socialist cultural policy - begins to sing. During the war, a filmmaker sends a video letter to his friends abroad. We roam a market full of ripe fruit on a hot summer day. Together with Branka, we look behind the scenes of a holiday paradise on and off season. A woman sends photos from her new home in a foreign country. Hands draw abstract ornaments with thin pencil lines. The chants of an old folk song are in the air”, states the description of the programme consisting of short films by Croatian authors made between 1993 and 2021.

The films will be screened at the City Kino Wedding in Berlin on 9th June. The programme kicks off at 7:30 p.m. while the entrance is free of charge. After the screening, the audience will have a chance to engage in a conversation with guests, project manager Renata Trischler and film director Mate Ugrin.
