Montenegro / Serbia / 2018 / Serbian, English / 82 minutes / DCP
Montenegro’s debut in global film festivals, with Salatić’s compelling story of a city by the sea undercut by the end of socialist Yugoslavia. Old and young silently watch its lifeblood drain away with the closure of a shipyard that sustained life under capitalism and socialism. Strong characters face dilemmas that cut across generations, whether trying to find a reason to stay or leaving home behind. And we understand the forces that toss lives, like boats, across the eternal Mediterranean.
