Honey Night - Medena Nok

Skopje, on the night of the National holiday of the recently independent Republic of Macedonia, and also the 10th wedding anniversary of Nikola (deputy minister) and his wife Anna. The story begins with their arrival at home from the gala reception hosted by the Prime Minister. Anna and Nikola are facing their biggest marriage crises so far. She starts a quarrel as he has forgotten their anniversary. On the other side Nikola is completely obsessed by the current political scandal involving his Ministry resulting in the arrest of the Minister and his chief associates regarding one major privatization deal. He’s afraid that he might be arrested too for the reason of him being the sole author of the report of the disputed privatization. His intention at the moment is to hide and destroy the compromising evidence he keeps at home that might connect him with this affair. His fears and assumptions that he’s been followed and his home is bugged become true during the night. In the midst of the couple’s fight the secret police pay them an unexpected visit. Later on they discover the whole house is bugged. In this newly arisen situation Anna forgets her anger and is taken over by fear for her husband’s destiny. They don’t argue anymore. In the peak of this paranoia, Nikola is trying to commit suicide. After a long, turbulent and exhausting night, Nikola reconciles with his destiny and waits for the dawn.

Movie - Film

A filmmaker goes on the run rather than complete his latest picture in this offbeat comedy from Macedonian auteur Ivo Trajkov. A director (Trajkov) has grown weary of battling his producer for control of his latest project and decides to hit the road, borrowing his girlfriend's auto and stealing the production bankroll from the project's financiers. While at first the director claims to have a grand scheme for his ill-gotten gains, his plans take a serious left turn when he meets a strange young woman (Madla Zimova) and an eccentric hitchhiker (Karel Zima).

The Great Water - Golemata Voda

Based on a children's book written by Zivko Cingo in the 1970s, the movie is about the difficult transition in Macedonia after World War II. The film begins in the present as old Lem (Meto Jovanovski), Macedonian politician who is experiencing a heart attack and while he is being wheeled into a hospital and examined and wired, he has memory flashbacks to his childhood in 1945. He is brought to the 'orphanage' where orphans are children of the enemies of the new regime. There he learns how to adjust to the role of obedient brainwashing. He becomes mesmerized by a new kid, Isak, a beautiful and charismatic boy. The struggles quietly underplaying all of the camp surface activity are many: the dichotomy of a Communist ideology removing the Church from existence with a people dependent upon the spiritual values of religion, the Stalin/Tito issue, the adjustments to the policies of Communist regime in a country where fierce national pride had ruled, and the depersonalization of children into political pawns despite the need for role models and the luxury of growing up with friends and confidants.
