Damian's room

Jasna Krajinovic & 73' — 2008

Damien is 20 years old. We meet him a few months before he leaves the juvenile prison in Celtje (in Slovenia), where he had been detained since he was sixteen. From his cell he dreams of the room at home, the room that once used to his father’s and which awaits him when he returns to his grandparent’s house. When he finally arrives in this house, his desire to start a new life and to renew the relationship with his family and the society is put to trial…
