The Waiting Point
Maša Drndić, 2013.
The protagonist of this film is the small and crowded Croatian bus terminal in Rijeka, the living room of a town on the threshold of change. The Žabica bus station is a crossroads for tourists and an integral part of the local community. We follow the daily routines of the employees in the station’s shops, cafés and the ticket office, the bus drivers, the cabbies, the homeless, the permanent visitors and passers-by, to reveal a strange community vainly, yet persistently, trying to repair the cracks in a worn-out system.
