Igor Bezinović's new docu-fiction Fiume o morte was one of five documentaries supported by the Board of Management of Eurimages
at the final yearly meeting. The film reconstructs strange events in the autumn of 1919, when Italian poet D'Annunzio sieged the town of Rijeka - Fiume and declared it his own pocket state. During a short period that followed, Rijeka - Fiume became an unexpected centre for progressive tendencies in arts, but also a time fuse for growingly noxious nationalistic ideas.
