Slovenia/Croatia, 2017, 60 min
Playing men is a playful film about playing, about the beauty of the game and about men that play. In a time that may or may not be ours, men play, deadly seriously, yet with airy joy somewhere by the Mediterranean. Wrestling, rolling a cheese through village streets or the rapid-fire reciting of the right numbers are occupations of the highest importance. The director of the film films everything with serious lightness until he hits a creative block. In order to continue, he needs to rethink the rules of the game.
