Regional Competition

The Last Native Petrović

Damir Terešak

Family name Petrović from the island Cres will end after seven generations with Cvetko. Because of the impotence caused by diabetes he couldn’t make family nor have children. Impotence is something we read about in medical journals or women’s magazines, but we’ll hardly hear someone admit it because it’s often perceived as a ‘disgrace’. Cvetko talks openly about his frustrations and private life. He is a passionate porn film collector and despite his problems he has an obsessive interest in sex.
