Renata Lucic / Feature Documentary / Croatia, Qatar / 70 min / Original Language: Croatian / Interests: Women, Social Issues, Immigration, Family, Identity, Creative Documentary, Human


‘A Year of Endless Days’ follows two men from a Croatian village—Tomislav and Joso. They are in their 50s, living without their wives. Mostly in search of means for a better life, these women went to work abroad. They found new partners and moved permanently. We are introduced to the film by the director, who is also the narrator and the protagonist of the film—Renata. She is Tomislav’s daughter, and the story begins with her coming to her home village to visit her lonely father. Throughout the film, Renata follows Tomislav and Joso in their daily life routines. Joso regularly demonstrates his culinary skills at home or on the banks of the Sava River, where he and Tomislav delight in his delicacies. During their comedic gatherings, the two friends often have conversations where, besides having a good time, they complain and lament. Through their communication, we discover their life stories and get to know them as people. The film is mostly based on Renata’s observation, but at times she is participating by asking the guys questions, discussing something with them and also taking part in their activities, trying to understand her background and how to go forward.
