Slovenia/Macedonia 2017. Dir: Marko Naberšnik. 116 min. DCP

Growing economic inequality and the disappearing middle class are the topical backdrop of Slovenian writer-director Marko Naberšnik’s fourth fiction feature, a social drama with comic elements set in the filmmaker’s native city of Maribor. Boris (Jure Ivanušič), a factory worker facing financial problems, gets involved with a network marketing scheme in an effort to improve his family’s standard of living. He joins Cosmica, a sales and investment company promising professional prosperity and personal growth. Boris proves to be an adept salesman, but his dogged pursuit of material success and all its trappings begins to imperil his marriage. Naberšnik’s debut feature Rooster’s Breakfast, a massive box-office hit at home in Slovenia, was presented in our 2009 EUFF. In Slovenian with English subtitles.
