Since the 1960's, Croatian cinema has combined a haunting, angry, often savagely-bleak outcry against political and personal repression with humor, lyricism and tenderness born of constant conflict and adversity. While a great deal of attention has been focused on classic Czech, Polish or Hungarian cinema, relatively little attention has been paid to Croatia - an almost criminal oversight, since by any definition,
directors such as Vatroslav Mimica (An Event) and Krsto Papic (Handcuffs) belong on a short list of modern Central European masters.

In December 2000, the American Cinematheque and CAMEO presented “Wednesdays In Croatia,� the first comprehensive overview of Croatian cinema ever mounted on the West Coast. As a long-overdue follow-up to that series, “Cinema Croatia � features current Croatian filmmakers as well as acknowledged classics of Croatian cinema; in-person appearances by director Branko Ivanda (The Horseman),
producer Branko Lustig (Schindler's List, Gladiator, An Event) and actor Goran Visnjic (ER, Spartacus, The Long Dark Night) and much more!

series compiled by:
Dennis Bartok, Branko Lustig, Matko B. Malinger and Gwen Deglise
