PORTOROŽ: Buoyancy / Pod gladino by Klemen Dvornik will have its world premiere in the competition of the 19th Slovenian Film Festival in Portorož (13-18 September 2016). This is the fourth feature film by the 39-year-old Dvornik, who works at the AGRFT and founded his own production company Filmservis in 2009.
The script written by Barbara Zemljič follows a young lawyer Rebeka, who is assigned the murder case of a production designer and finds out that the main suspect is her childhood friend Jana. What at first seems like a straightforward case gradually reveals its dark sides, mysterious depths and stray ways of human nature.
“Buoyancy deals with trust. It’s a film about trust in oneself and the others, and above all about how trust is gained and lost. I was also interested in when and under what circumstances we as people are, without bad conscience, capable of inadmissible actions“, Dvornik told FNE.
The lead role is played by the 31-year-old actress Nika Rozman. The cast includes well known Slovenian actors Nina Ivanišin, Peter Musevski and Jernej Šugman.
The film was entirely produced by RTV Slovenija with a budget of 433,000 EUR. It was shot in Ljubljana in November-December 2015. RTV Slovenija will broadcast it soon after the Slovenian Film Festival.
