Croatian Avant Garde Filmmakers Of The 1960's says
“The filmmakers represented in this program are among the most prominent members of the enormously vibrant Croatian experimental scene of the 1960s. All of them were members of the amateur cine-clubs that formed in all the major cities of Yugoslavia at the time, as well as participants in the Genre Film Festival, a unique festival of experimental film in Zagreb that was the most important gathering point for “film researchers” and other independent filmmakers from Yugoslavia. Their approach to cinematic experiments differed greatly, from a prototype of the so-called anti-film to works that anticipated the structural film movement, to poetic-meditative orientations.”
