A documentary film made in the corridor of the Zagreb Municipal Court, in which barristers speak about the reasons for trials and court proceedings. The director stimulates them to a certain type of behaviour before the camera, i.e. makes it possible for them to perform or play freely chosen “roles”, speak about themselves or recite, and thus present themselves. The Corridor won the Oktavijan Award at the Days of Croatian Film in 1995.
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.
