Interview: Ognjen Glavonic – The Load

World preeming at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, Ognjen Glavonic certainly had the odds stacked against him to create his fiction debut and a lot of it had to do with history not wanting to be revisited. Naturally, it is not what is presumed to being carried that makes for the solid discourse, but what is not being said. The Load, would win the filmmaker the Best Director award at Marrakech, and I caught up with him a couple of days prior to the festival coming to and end with one of my more memorable screenings. We discussed his moving camera aesthetic, splintered portrait of youth and what the protagonist finds when he ends up at his final destination.
