The film was shot in Stanka’s hometown Čakovec, and it shows a city occupied by lions, which, in cooperation with nature, is defended by a thirteen-year-old boy.
Jury review: “The gaze of a child is not easy to transfer to cinematography. In this film we can see in the first person as if we were children. Like the main character. We enter his world and understand it. Very good acting and artistic direction. Natural and diaphanous scenes. Very good lighting.”
Stanka Gjurić’s short film, ‘Perfect Tattoo’ this days won the award in the category ‘Best fiction’ at ‘Summer Film Festival’ (Barcelona / Argentina). Fifteen countries from three continents took part in the festival under the common name ‘4 Seasons Film Festival’. Review of the film ‘Perfect Tattoo, by an Festival Jury: “Great fiction film with a thriller ending. Black and white is justified to perfection, as it brings interest to the scenes. The rhythm is in crescendo. This helps the viewer to position themselves. But at the same time it surprises with unexpected details. Very good performances.”
