  • Available from 3rd August on Sky TV, iTunes, Google Play, Microsoft and Amazon Prime.

Walk This Way – an EU MEDIA funded Project for straight-to-VoD European cinema – comes back to the UK with a Croatian story of universal appeal, The High Sun, which deals with burning issues of today: migration, borders and xenophobia.

The High Sun – directed by acclaimed Croatian director Dalibor Matanić- shines a light on three love stories, set in three consecutive decades, in two neighbouring Balkan villages with a long history of inter-ethnic hatred. It is a film about the fragility –and intensity – of forbidden love.

The film comes to the UK with a strong reputation, having won the Jury Prize at Cannes in 2015 and after being nominated to represent Croatia in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 88th Academy Awards, amongst other European and international awards.
