Goran Paskaljević’s When Day Breaks, starring Mustafa Nadarević, premiered this week in Kino Europa in Zagreb, in front of a full auditorium. This marks the beginning of its screening in Croatian independent cinemas.
The film revolves around a 72 year old music professor Miša Brankov, who learns about his family’s history under unusual circumstances. During an excavation at Judenlager Semlin, a former concentration camp in Belgrade, workers come across a box filled with documents that was buried in 1941 by a camp’s prisoner Isaac Weiss, Miša’s father.
When Day Breaks is a result of Serbian-French co-production, and one of the co-producers is our own Damir Terešak of Maxima Film.
Nadarević and Paskaljević gave special acknowledgement to Terešak at the premiere of the film, for recognizing the project’s value at the right moment and enabling its realization.
When Day Breaks will be released theatrically in the intimate atmosphere of Muller hall in Kino Europa next weekend, courtesy of 2i Film.
