poster Safe Place (Juraj Lerotic, HR 2022)
After his brother Damir attempts suicide, Bruno feels left out in the cold; he can’t find a 'safe place' in this unemotional, distant society. As they seek help, the family come up against a wall of hostile police officers. The health service also lets Damir down. In raw, lyrical, sensitive images, director Juraj Lerotić condemns those services that turned a blind eye to an acute mental health crisis within a family.

In Eye and national cinemas.
