The film reveals the background and course of events during the largest protest in recent Croatian history, when over 100 thousand people gathered on 21 November 1996 to rally against the closure of Radio 101. This is a complex and information-laden reconstruction, compiled almost a decade afterwards. The documentary features the memories and reasons for participation in the turbulent events explained by the 101 central players, numerous politicians of different profiles and independent media representatives. What used to belong to the past, only eight years after the film was made becomes strangely familiar and almost frightening.
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.
