VLADIMIR FILM FESTIVAL 2019 / REPORT

Vladimir - for the obscure.

The black sheep has only been developing exponentially over its now nine years of existence, and so has been the attention it's received with, this year, an approximation of three hundred people showing up from the whole planet over to attend this local festival in Fažana, Croatia - a little Istrian port town with a loaded history, testimonies of which still stand under the form of monuments everywhere (currently ensuring a steady flow of tourism), and the sensibilities of the inhabitants.

What originally started out as a very local initiative consisting in video screenings at the local skatepark quickly outgrew that embryonic phase as its instigators, Nikola Racan (of 'Solsticij' full-length video underground fame) and the Skateboard klub August Šenoa locals grew to use modern communication tools to get further and further in touch with universally renowned skate artists and documentarists - whether in the photo or video field.

PREMIERE / "Brothers" / Nino Jurlina / INTERVIEW

One of the perks of LIVE Skateboard Media is the opportunity to collaborate, curate and present the works of many underground artists with blossoming talent, and a common bond to one activity that in turn influenced lifetimes of stories to tell. Here we are very proud to showcase a new, amazing full-length video from Croatia: "Brothers", by Nino Jurlina, who also runs Simple Skateboards, a humble one-man operation with barely a Facebook page (but with a steady feed of videos on Mondays). Nino's whole enterprise really qualifies as an independent effort, quietly nurtured by hand, and with a certain appreciation for the tangible, the physical - sensible life in short; driven by his perception of his passion, the man has been a figure of the underground Croatian scene for quite a while. "Brothers" reflects just that and as such, is a beautiful piece the kind of which justifies the activity of skate media altogether. But before or after you dive head first into it, please take a look below as we jumped on the opportunity to catch up with Nino, and chit chat about his general direction!
