TAKVA SU PRAVILA
2014, 78 min, Croatia, Dir: Ognjen Svilicic

A Zagreb couple’s realization that the social institutions around them are riddled with apathy is the core of this subtle and haunting drama from writer-director Ognjen Svilicic. When 18-year-old Tomica (Hrvoje Vladisavljević) returns home badly beaten, parents Ivo (Venice Film Festival best actor Emir Hadžihafizbegović) and Maja (Jasna Zalica) face uphill battles to get medical treatment and justice for their son. In Croatian with English subtitles.
