During a ship voyage from Morocco to Spain, the film takes place, and three stories related to the fear of loss are intertwined.
Desperate, the protagonists are trying to find a way to each other, but their helplessness leaves room for the inevitable. It is a said release from the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC), which has also supported it.
The film is a Dutch-Belgian-Croatian co-production, and Croatia’s co-producer is Siniša Juričić (Nukleus Film), and a mostly domestic film crew is in charge of the shooting, which will last 30 days. In addition to Pula, the film will be shot in Rijeka, Zadar, and Zagreb.
Producer Germen Boelens said that a film in Morocco and Spain and is being shot in Croatia was demanding in itself. Still, everything had been much easier given the experienced and well-prepared crew in Croatia.
Of course, the whole situation with the virus is changing the work process, but we have, as always, adapted to all the required conditions. Hence, we comply with both Dutch and Croatian epidemiological measures and thus maximally protect the entire crew.
After Pula, the film will be shot in Rijeka, on 15 and 16 May, then in Zadar, and finally in Zagreb. The film should premiere in late 2022.
Croatian co-producer Siniša Juričić from Nukleus Film said that the collaboration started when he met at a workshop producer German Boelens, who realized that he wouldn’t be able to realize his project in Spain, asked if he could do anything in Croatia.
According to him, as many as 85% of the film crew are from Croatia — Ana Bulajić Črček is the makeup artist, Zorana Meić is the costume designer, Petar Strmečki is the gaffer, and actors come from six countries.
