2021 Cannes Camera D'Or–Best Debut Feature
2021 Pula Audience Award, Best Debutant, Best Supporting Actress (Danica Ćurčić)

Executive produced by Martin Scorsese, Murina is a psychological drama that examines the fragile relationship between teenagers, oppressive parents, and love interests. Murina opens with what seems like an idyllic life: 16-year-old Julija catching eels in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean in a sleepy Croatian sleeping town. The arrival of family friend Javier upsets the tranquil existence of the family. As her father attempts to broker a life-changing deal, their tranquil yet isolated existence leaves Julija wanting more from this influential visitor, who provides a taste of liberation over a weekend laid bare to desire and violence. Having its premiere at the Director's Fortnight Section at Cannes where it won the Camera d'Or for best debut, Dubrovnik-born filmmaker Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović’s feature debut Murina takes its name from moray eels.
