An intimate story about the director’s search for her brother who went missing during the war in Croatia in 1991. The film is also a reminiscence of the story of the author’s grand- mother who lost her husband in World War II. The Boy Who Rushed is considered one of the best and most awarded Croatian documentaries in the past two decades.
Biljana Čakić obtained her degree from the Zagreb Academy of Visual Arts. In 1992, she made her first war-related documentary Maja II. Her documentary cycle Killing Fields (1999/2000) was made as a result of her collaboration with the Association of the Families of Missing Croatian Soldiers and POWs. A year later, she completed the multi-award winning film The Boy Who Rushed, documenting her search for her missing brother. In 2007, she directed the docu-fiction film Zagorka and in 2011 her first feature-length fiction Step by Step. Her film Jazz Apartment (or How the Last Minute Open Jazz Festival Came to Be), co-directed with Tomislav Lovro Pavlek in 2012, was presented at the 2013 ZagrebDox. Marathon Men (2016) was screened in Regional Competition of the 2017 ZagrebDox.
