Tusta

Croatia, 2019, 52 min,

Tusta made his first musical steps in the 1980s, when the band Kud Idijoti was established. What makes Tusta special and what definitely goes beyond the boundaries of music is his powerful and unrelenting antifascist orientation and the background of a sort of Balkan’s “working class hero”. This attitude was what made Tusta and Kud Idijoti the spokespeople of a series of generations growing up in the 1980s and 1990s. We saw no politicians at Tusta’s funeral, but we did see hundreds of people from all former Yugoslav republics who travelled thousands of kilometres to say goodbye to the musical “Che” of this region.
