The Doors Art Foundation is proud to present monthly screenings featuring a selection of films from the Croatian cinema of the last decade. 

  

THE RED DUST  takes its title from a line in Dostoevesky which says that "the blood is least visible on the red" - a phrase whose significance is not revealed until the end of the film.

The story is told through the eyes of 16-year-old Skgra , who witnesses the whole, violent chain of events. Everything begins when Crni, a successful amateur boxer, deserts from the army after the authorities fail to deliver the telegram about his mother's death, and returns to Zagreb, where his girlfriend, Lidija, is about to marry the local mafia boss.

Crni himself drifts into petty crime, and ends up unintentionally working for the same boss. Lidija eventually leaves her violent husband, but dies in suspicious circumstances in Crni's house. He is jailed. Then the war breaks out and everything changes, and such small crimes begin to pale into insignificance alongside what is happening in Croatia.
