Igor Drljaca will be in attendance for the first two screenings of his debut feature, Krivina at the Royal, and sticking around for Q&A sessions.
The film – beginning its run this Friday January 25, 2013 – follows the nomadic Miro of the former Yugoslavia, currently taking up residence in Toronto, as he begins a trek across across Bosnia. His return to his former home comes after news that an old friend, someone he has not seen in two decades, is a wanted war criminal.
Drljaca describes the making of Krivina as therapeutic, as much of Miro’s journey and his restlessness in his adopted country comes from his own experiences. Drljaca’s previous non-fiction short The Fuse: Or How I Burned Simon Bolivar was named one of the top ten short films of 2011 by TIFF’s Canada’s Top Ten series.
When: Friday January 25, 2013 at 7:00pm
Where: The Royal Cinema (608 College Street)
