Premiere. The LoadPremiere. The Load


The almost silent mix of a thriller and a road movie set during the war in Serbia follows a truck driver transporting a mysterious load between cities.

Serbia, 1999. The NATO bombings have become part of the bleak everyday life. Truck driver Vlada agrees to transport a strange load from Kosovo to Belgrade to make some money. He and his fellow travelers are trying to survive in the cold desolation of the war, but what is the price of their survival?

Quiet and austere, yet ringing with tension, the drama debut by young Serbian filmmaker Ognjen Glavonić explores the choices humans make in the extreme conditions of war, where death has become part of the everyday. One of the main debuts of 2018, The Load premiered at the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes.
