Thresholds / Pragovi
Croatia, 2013, Colour, 13 min
The year is 1992. War is raging in Croatia. The new government carries out forceful evictions of the 'unfit' occupants from their apartments. In sudden eviction, Ivan and Vesna find themselves on the opposite sides. From 1991 to 1994, during the war in Croatia, the new Croatian government forced evictions of more than 5,000 non-Croatian citizens, mainly Serbs, from their apartments. Most of the evicted families were unable to return to their homes and some are still trying to reclaim their rights through legal proceedings. This is a film about civil courage and passive majority.
