Event (general): Movie Thursday at the Croatian State Archives: 'Traffic safety' by Nikša Fulgosi, 2017
Movie Thursday (Filmski četvrtak) was launched in 2013 for the popularization and promotion of the film archival materials stored in the Croatian Cinematheque. Film projections are held once a month.
Within the projections from the National Collection of the Croatian Film Archive, four short films of Nikša Fulgosi were presented: Privatni rat građanina iks [The Private War of Citizen X] (1962, 10 min), Drugarstvo na putu [Camaraderie on the road] (1963, 13 min), Ravnodušnost na ulicama [Indifference on the Streets] (1963., 11 min) and Put nije samo vaš [The Road Isn’t Just Yours] (1963, 13 min).
In some of his films, Nikša Fulgosi submitted subversive or explicit political messages that might be related to cultural opposition. Although the main purpose of the films was education of the wider population, Fulgosi made sarcastic observations about social everyday life.
The program was prepared by the film archivist Mladen Burić, and the review after the screening was presented by Željko Luketić, film critic, publicist and screenwriter.
