Yugoslavia, late 1980s. A family welcomes their beloved uncle (Predrag Miki Manojlović) coming home for the holidays from Germany. The joyous Christmas lunch is interrupted by a smartphone ringing. It becomes clear it’s not the 80s, it’s not Christmastime either, and it is not just the festive turkey that can be cut with a knife, but tension too. Developed at ZFF’s screenwriting workshop My First Script, Uncle blends family psychological horror, social satire and holiday black comedy and arrives to ZFF crowned with a Karlovy Vary Special Mention and awards for best script and costume design at Pula.
