Support Croatian talent and watch "All for Free" in New York City!

Croatia is a part of The Global Film Initiative

The films presented in this annual collaboration, now in its fifth year, are part of the touring film exhibition Global Lens, a project conceived by The Global Film Initiative (GFI) to encourage filmmaking in countries with developing film communities. Developed with seed money from GFI, this year's eight films, representing eight different countries, constitute a concise survey of contemporary filmmaking from areas where local economic realities make such expensive and technology-driven endeavors a challenge. Accomplished, entertaining, and thought-provoking, the films are also deeply rooted in the social and political realities of the countries where their talented and resourceful makers live and set their stories. Two films in the exhibition, The Bet Collector (2006, Philippines), and Opera Jawa (2006, Indonesia) will have weeklong runs, allowing them to build an audience and attract critical attention. Several films are part of an educational project between GFI and MoMA's Department of Education, and will be screened separately for participating educational institutions and schools in the New York area.

Sve Dzaba (All for Free). 2006. Croatia.

Directed by Antonio Nuic.

With Rakan Rushaidat, Bojan Navojec, Daria Lorenci, Natasa Janjic, Emir Hadzinafizbegovic and Enis Beslagic.

Natasa Janjic and Rakan Rushaidat star in "All for Free"

When his friends are killed in a bizarre barroom argument, Goran is left without a sense of belonging. A neighbor offers to buy Goran's house, providing him with the perfect opportunity to realize his dream of buying a truck and converting it into a mobile home and bar. Wandering with no particular destination in mind, he comes across a shelled-out town, where he opens his bar and offers drinks to passersby at no charge, occasioning hostility as well as celebration. Nuic's darkly humorous take on the road movie uncovers the recent wounds of war, but the indomitable optimism of its protagonist also reveals a torn country's shared humanity. In Croatian; English subtitles. 94 min.
