Bread and Circuses Bread and Circuses

Thursday 15 November 2012 6:00PM Bread and Circuses

The Novak family is chosen to participate in a family-oriented quiz show. While mother and daughter are thrilled by the idea of being on television, father and son are unhappy that they will miss the carnival that takes place in their small town. Travelling to the TV show turns into a comedy of errors, which includes a misunderstanding with the police.

Once they arrive at the studio, they realize that the world of television is not what it seems to be and their small town values are turned upside down. Bread and Circuses is a nostalgic comedy about the last gasp of socialism in Yugoslavia and about a family looking ahead to brighter days.
