ZAGREB, 3 Oct, 2021 - The Dawn, an award-winning film directed and written by Dalibor Matanić, will premiere on HBO GO and the HBO channel on 7 October, the Croatian Audio Visual Centre (HAVC) announced earlier this week.

The second part of Matanić's trilogy (The High Sun, The Dawn and Sunset) traces Matija whose family is confronted with unresolved trauma, as their neighbours flee from the radicalism that divides them into the chosen ones and the undesirables. As Matija loses his faith and struggles to find his true self, the dawn breaks over the valley, revealing that the only way to deal with trauma and evil is to face them head-on, HAVC says on its website.

Tihana Lazović, Krešimir Mikić, Lara Vladović, Maks Kleončić, Nataša Matjašec Rošker and Marko Mandić make up the cast.

After its world premiere at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival in the autumn of 2020, the film was shown at the International Film Festival Karlovy Vary this summer, in the category of the most important films shown in the previous year.

At the Pula Film Festival, The Dawn won four Golden Arenas - for the best camera, editing, music and sound.
