Description:
A teenage road movie, Winter Flies earned Slovenian director Olmo Omerzu Best Director Award at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.

Winter. Police interrogate 14-year-old Mára at the station after catching him behind the wheel far from where he lives. He and somewhat eccentric Heduš have set out for the frozen landscape down south to seek adventure, but the mischievous breeziness with which Mára relates his story gradually strips his statement of credibility. A movie about the flies that occasionally buzz around in winter, telling a story of boyhood friendship and the irrepressible desire to experience something, even if you don't exactly know what.

"The key to understanding the film is the characters' background; what has happened before the action kicks off on the screen. Then we can speculate what becomes of them after the closing credits. And winter is part of that. When it's freezing outside, the car is a symbol of a warm place the children don't have at home." (Olmo Omerzu)
