Shortly after Koko (Antonio Parac) and his family move to a new house in the city, eerily strange things start happening, and they begin to wonder if the house is inhabited by spirits - the previous owner, perhaps? When Koko’s sister goes missing, the young boy must embark on a quest to find her, and along the way discover the truth about the house and its bizarre supernatural quirks. A smash success upon its release in Croatia, Daniel Kusan’s KOKO AND THE GHOSTS is a wonderful adventure film for the whole family to enjoy. In Croatian with English subtitles.
An elegant hymn to memory and the transporting power of the movies, Terence Davies’ tale of young Bud, a lonely, isolated preteen in postwar Liverpool, was listed by Time Out London as one of the best British films ever made, and is a moving biographical work. Though doted upon by his mother and sisters, Bud is miserable at his new school, where menacing bullies make his life hell, and he retreats to the local movie house, letting the silvery images of the cinema bring him some solace.
