Lea and Daria

Director: Branko Ivanda.
LEA & DARIA is inspiring true story about two thirteen-year-old girls who were, on the eve of World War II, great dancing and acting stars in Zagreb. Selling out theatre venues, they were praised in the most superb headlines by the Croatian and European press. They were filmed by Parisian Pathe and Berlin’s UFA… During the Nazi persecution of Jews and the later German nationals’ flight from communists, a dramatic friendship was born through entertainment, dance, but also anxiety. This led towards an unexpected end.

Ogresta – Behind the Glass- No Typical Croatian Film

On the territory of Balkan, in countries of ex Yugoslavia, it is beyond the doubt a miracle to see film that deals on every day subject of a contemporary life we all are living in.
