SKOPJE: Goran Trenchovski`s debut feature Golden Five / Zlatna petorka, about an event from 1951 when five students from Strumica were executed, is proving a success in Macedonian cinemas.
Revolution Production released the film in Skopje on 6 October and in Strumica on 7 October, selling over 18,000 tickets so far. This makes it the most watched Macedonian movie of the year. It is the most watched movie in the last ten years in Strumica.
