Caruga - Mirror Of The Time
As a part of commemorating a centennial of the beginning of World War I, Croatian State's archive has ventured into the realm of filmmaking. In the aftermath of WW I. territorial changes in the region have created opportunities for heroes to emerge in the eyes of the common folk, because they seemingly battled the government. They raised passions throughout the area. Those circumstances enabled one of the most famous outlaws in Slavonia, Jovan Stanisavljević Čaruga to pillage the entire area. Screenwriter and director is Boris Šeper (Film 54). The film relies on historical sources rather than anecdotes from Čaruga's life with contributions from experts in history, psychology and law.
