The Croatian film scene has remained largely inaccessible until now. In this first comprehensive volume on the subject recognized scholars explore not only its recent history, since the establishment of the Croatian state, but also revisit its development during the Yugoslav period. By introducing readers to the complex political and artistic circumstances, the authors approach animation, documentary, and feature films, through questions of style and vision, social engagement, industry, national identity, gender, audience, and domestic and international reception. In depth interviews with some of the most prominent Croatian film directors provide insights into their artistic practices while also serving as first-hand testimonials to both socialist and transitional cultural environments. Encompassing a rich selection of films with a broad palette of themes and styles, the review section provides an indispensible guide through a little known world.

About the Author:

Aida Vidan is Researcher in the Milman Parry Collection of Oral Literature and Instructor in  South Slavic Languages and Literatures at Harvard University. She is the author of Embroidered with Gold, Strung with Pearls: The Traditional Ballads of Bosnian Women (Milman Parry Collection & Harvard University Press) and co-author of Beginner’s Croatian and Beginner’s Serbian (Hippocrene Books).

Review:

“...a solid survey of Croatian film production, its specificities in relation to its past association with Yugoslav cinema, as well as its uncertain future... a useful reference work that can be broadly used by specialists and students alike, as well as anyone interested in the history of Croatian film.”  ·  Slavic and East European Journal

"In this first comprehensive anthology, profiles of major films and conversations with prominent directors draw on the political history of this fascinating multi-ethnic region, but no film or filmmaker is reduced to its pressures. The perfect guide to a barely-known world."  ·  Caryl Emerson, Princeton University

"The collection of articles, interviews and reviews presented here by Aida Vidan and Gordana P. Crnković offers an excellent insight into the affairs of contemporary cinema in Croatia...the articles cover a range of media, from animation to feature and documentary, whilst covering a variety of different themes―gender, national identity, industry. The review section is maybe one of the most diversified, both in terms of the selection of contributors and films that has been published in English. The editors have energetically and bravely mastered a tall order and compiled an excellent collection that could become a textbook for teaching Croatian cinema."  ·  Birgit Beumers, University of Bristol
