Croatia day: the plot of THE EIGHT COMMISSIONER and the menu of the typical dinner

THE EIGHT COMMISSIONER (2018) is a comedy of the director Ivan Salaj, based on the homonymous book written by Renato Baretic. The movie is about a drug and sex scandal and the arrogant politician Mesjak who was involved in during his rise to the government. To keep him out of rumor, the President named him head of the government of Trecic, a Croatian remote island, with no means to communicate with the outside World. The movie was an Oscar nominee as the best foreign film to represent Croatia. Ivan Salaj is a director and screenwriter born in Zagreb and starting from the 90s he worked for the field of cinema and television. Among his works there are Man sieht sich (1995), Zagrabacke price vol.3 (2015), Osmi povjerenik (2018). He received several awards for Second Floor, Basement (1991), Hotel Sunja (1992) and See you (1995). To conclude the event we will enjoy a Croatian dinner to taste the best typical food, including pašticada, a beef stew in a red wine sauce, Paški sir, a sheep cheese originally from the Island of Pag and Ćevapčići, delicious spicy meatballs and rice, of course.
