Naive female artists called straw-girls Croats in the north of today's Vojvodina are something like forgotten miracle. The name ‘straw-girls’ is derived from Croatian name for straw. They use straw weaving for making beautiful and poetic description of their hard and lonely life at home which is a small oasis with a hut in immense Panonian golden plain with several trees and unavoidable well. Very common motives are small Catholic churches and Christian symbols. At the 1976 international exhibition of naive art in Moscow Ana Milodanovic won the gold medal with her work with straw weaving. Also, Kata Rogic had exceptional honour to present her work to Pope Paul the 6th in Vatican.
Branko Ištvančić was born in Subotica in 1967. He graduated in film and TV directing from the Academy of Dramatic Art in Zagreb in 1999. He made his first 8mm documentary films at the age of 13 and has been pursuing documentary filmmaking ever since. The London First Film Foundation included his student film Saying Goodbye (1993) among the six most important films by young European directors. He is the winner of two Oktavian Awards for best documentary film, a Zlatna uljanica Award and the award for best director at Croatian Film Days, as well as several awards from festivals abroad. His documentary The Cormorant Scarecrow (1998, screened at 2016 ZagrebDoxu) was chosen as one of the best Croatian documentaries, while his debut fiction film The Ghost in the Swamp (2006) was one of the biggest-grossing Croatian fiction films. The short film, Recycling (2009), was part of the Zagreb Stories omnibus. His documentaries Stone Picker (2005) and Album (2011) have already screened at ZagrebDox.
