Our Zagorje Special program strives to show that Tabor Film Festival is not the only link between the region of Hrvatsko Zagorje and cinema. By finding films of differing genres that have a certain connection to Zagorje – whether they revolve around Zagorje in theme, via inspiration or the region plays a role in the authors’ background – the program is set on exploring the cinematic potential of Zagorje.
This year, we are proud to present the documentary Izidor Popijač Žiga of Be- dinja, a film about the self-taught artist from Zagorje known for his sculpture and relief work done in two local mate- rials – clay and water oak, sourced from the Bednja riverbed. Apart from using it to make art, Popijač was also the first to discover and become the professional protector of the specific type of bog- wood found here, called Quercus fosilli- ca robur bedniensis. Sergije Michieli is the film director and DOP.
