Croatia 2000 - Who Wants To Be A President is a feature-length documentary film about dramatic political events that occurred in the period between the death of Croatian president Franjo Tudjman and the victory of Stipe Mesić in the presidential elections. Incessantly following (sometimes with ten cameras) the most influential figures in Croatian political life, cameras witnessed the moments of their biggest battle, their greatest victory and crushing defeat, and days of great strain, passion and political combat.
This is, by all accounts, the most ambitious documentary project ever filmed in Croatia and the first documentary film ever distributed (very successfully) in Croatian theaters.
Croatia 2000 premiered in competition at the Amsterdam Documentary Film Festival and was shown at many festivals in Europe and the USA. It was awarded with international critic award, "FIPRESCI."
