The Waiting Point

director: Maša Drndić
original title: Polazište za čekanje
country: Croatia
year: 2013
running time: 43 min.

synopsis

The collective memory of a nation accumulates at a bus stop in Rijeka. Croatians wait aimlessly for a figurative Godot, as the flow of time is illustrated by the decreasing number of cigarettes in boxes along with the departure of the buses. Rijeka is like a crossroads, where the lives of the local community meet those of tourists passing through.

The director steps into the black-and-white reality of Croatia with the invisibility of an objective observer. His footage shows people waiting for the bus as a metaphor for Croatians’ endless waiting for change.
