A satirical view of the Zagreb Employment Service in the late 1980s, when the Croatian capital had a very high unemployment rate in former Yugoslavia. In the corridors of the Service we meet unemployed people of all profiled, but also bland employees with stacks of charts. All of them on a futile mission: the unemployed trying to find a job praying not to find it, the employees offering them other people’s jobs, all this framed by empty administrative talk. Our Stock Exchange earned Brešan a diploma at the Oberhausen festival.
Vinko Brešan was born 1964 in Zagreb. He studied comparative literature and philosophy at the Zagreb Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and film and TV directing at the Zagreb Academy of Dramatic Art. In 1994 and 1995 he won the Oktavijan Award at the Days of Croatian Film for his short documentary films Lunch Together and The Corridor. His debut fiction film How the War on My Island Started was the second highest grossing film in Croatian cinemas, after Titanic, since 1990. His fiction films Marshal (1999) and Witnesses (2003) won festival awards in Berlin and Karlovy Vary, and his fourth fiction film Will Not End Here (2008) won the FIPRESCI Award in Karlovy Vary. The film The Priest’s Children (2013) was the most viewed Croatian film in the 21st century.
