Mladen Juran

Croatian director and screenwriter Mladen Juran (Zagreb, 1942°) got in touch with film and theatre for the first time when he studied dramatic arts at the Théâtre National Populaire in Paris (1965-1669). Also in France, he was taught by Lee Strasberg and worked as an assistant director for Michael Cacoyannis, Abel Gance and Med Honda. Since then, Mladen Juran has made over 200 long and short feature films and documentaries, among which Thirty Horses and the awarded Transatlantic. Sunken Cemetery, a fascinating mix of amnesia, murder, family secrets and the supernatural, is his ticket to Brussels.
