THAT OTHER VILLAGE tells the story of a village that twice changed its name, population and its own history. Hidden on the outskirts of Europe and nested between two mountains in Eastern Croatia, the village is haunted by unending trauma passed on from generation to generation. Memories of inter-ethnic conflict keep the community in a perpetual state of anxiety. The village becomes a paradigm of a vicious cycle between mutual feelings of injustice and inherited guilt. In times of major social crises, they will again serve as a trigger for new conflicts.Through conversations with members of both ethnic groups, a deep-seated chasm opens. Fluent and contradictory, THAT OTHER VILLAGE explores how personal memories and attitudes can be strongly shaped by collective ethnicity.

Jadran Boban is a documentary filmmaker living in Zagreb, Croatia. He has directed several documentary films and a television docuseries. The films include THAT OTHER VILLAGE (2020), NO ONE’S (2014), which won the ‘Best Documentary Film Award’ at Tuzla Film Festival (Bosnia and Herzegovina), and THE GHOSTS OF ZAGREB (2009), winner of the ‘Special Jury Award’ at Liburnia Film Festival (Croatia). Currently, Boban is working on a full feature documentary film, THE WOLF OF THE EUROPEAN UNION, in collaboration with the Croatian Audiovisual Centre.
