On The Water
Na vodiCroatia, 2018, 79 min, Colour
A portrait of a former industrial town shown from the perspective of the river running through its centre. Today, the river is a space of relaxation and leisure. A closer look at the people spending their time along its banks lays bare all the social conflicts of a country in transition. The river uncovers the remnants of the past left lying in the water.
