– Shown with Housekeeping for Beginners

Zagreb in the early 1960s. An ordinary Zagreb family lives in a cramped flat in an old residential building and dreams of a more spacious home that will be theirs alone. A humorous story about their subsequent move to their own flat in a new building, told from the perspective of their little daughter. Inspired by the novel The Diary of Little Perica, My Flat is the directorial debut of Zvonimir Berković, the director of Croatian film classic Rondo and screenwriter of what many consider the best Croatian film, H-8. The film was screened at Cannes, where it won the Short Film Jury Prize.
