LJUBLJANA: Slobodan Maksimović’s Nika, a teen family drama about a 16-year-old go-cart driver who wins the most important race of her life, has been completed in time to screen on opening night at the Czech Zlin Film Festival running 27 May to 4 June 2016.

Nika loves racing go-carts. Her father, a professional race car driver, who died in a car accident, had inspired her love for this sport. Nika’s mother is afraid that after the death of her husband she could lose her only daughter as well. However, her opposition only fuels Nika’s efforts.

The main character is played by newcomer Ylenia Mahnič, joining professional actors Marjuta Slamič, Sebastian Cavazza, Benjamin Krnetić, Gašper Tič, Nenad Tokalić and Gojmir Lešnjak. Shooting took place in May and June 2015 at the Slovenian coast (Koper, Izola, Piran, Sečovlje).

The film is produced by Darko Vinkl, Alan Vitezič, Bistra Borak and Miha Hočevar through Nora Production Group in coproduction with Radiotelevizija Slovenija.The total budget is estimated at 750,000 EUR. The project was supported by the Slovenian Film Center with 150,000 EUR. Technical support was provided by Studio Viba Film.

Maksimović, born in Sarajevo, studied film and television direction at the AGRFT. His short films ½ and AgapE have been shown in the competition programmes of more than 30 international film festivals and won 14 international rewards. His debut feature, Thanks for Sunderland (2012, Radiotelevizija Slovenija), won the Vesna Award for Best Film at the 15th Slovenian Film Festival in 2012.

The domestic theatrical release is expected for October 2016 by Slovenian distributor Cinemania Group.
