SPOTLIGHT ON CANNES 2021: DIRECTORS' FORTNIGHT — MURINA —Antoneta Alamat Kusijanovic
"Tensions rise between restless teenager Julija and her oppressive father Ante when an old family friend arrives at their Croatian island home. As Ante attempts to broker a life-changing deal, their tranquil yet isolated existence leaves Julija wanting more from this influential visitor, who provides a taste of liberation over a weekend laid bare to desire and violence."
