Herzog’s piece, sharp comedy from the region and Holbrooke on the fourth night of FAST FORWARD 2016

Centre for Civic Education (CCE) will, tonight, at the Human Rights Film Festival Fast Forward 2016 show premiered three films of most recent world production, “Lo and Behold” by Werner Herzog, “Ministry of Love” by Pavo Marinković and “Diplomat” authored by David Holbrooke.

„Lo and Behold“, by author Werner Herzog will be screened at 17:00h. Oscar-nominated documentarian Werner Herzog chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed, how virtually everything in the real world works – from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships.

„Ministry of Love“, a razor sharp comedy of contemporary Croatia will be screened at 19:00h. Krešo is at a loose end, a fully qualified biologist, he’s about to hit middle age, disillusioned, out of work and stuck in a marriage that should probably never have started. Meanwhile, the county’s cash-strapped government is busy looking for unique ways to save money, and now, over 20 years after the war, sets its sights on the widows. Anyone not yet remarried, but in a new relationship will no longer be allowed a military pension. Enforcing the unpopular requires a new department: the Ministry of Love, whose purpose will be to gather information on any widows breaking the new law. With nothing to lose, Krešo agrees to be put forward by his pushy father in law. The only problem is, together with his eccentric partner, Šikić, he’s completely the wrong man for the job. It has successfully participated in Pula Film Festival 2016, Film Festival Avvantura Zadar 2016, Montreal World Film Festival 2016, Slovenian Film Festival 2016, Raindance Film Festival 2016, Chicago International Film Festival 2016, Arras Film Festival in 2016 and Mostar Film Festival in 2016 and the trailer of the film, as well as more details of festivals where the film was shown, can be found at: http://ubrzaj.me/index.php/sr/program-berane/ministarstvo-ljubavi.
