Croatia’s Official Oscar Submission! Cowboy Costume Contest, Musical Performance and Reception!
Fans of Westerns, come in costume! There will be prizes for the best cowboy and cowgirl awarded after the screening, as well as a musical performance and reception.
2013, WIDE Management, 105 min, Croatia, Dir: Tomislav Mršić

Writer-director Tomislav Mršić’s amusing adaptation of the Croatian hit play centers on a theatre company in a claustrophobic industrial town. Under the guidance of theatre director Saša Anočić, an assembly of antiheroes fight their demons and overcome prejudice as they mount a production based on classic Hollywood Westerns. As the actors use the conventions of the genre to develop the story, they begin to view the play as a metaphor for their own destinies – and the opportunity of a lifetime. Croatia’s Official Oscar Submission!
