The death of a man who goes by the nickname Oroslan sends a shock wave through a small Slovenian community just across the border in Hungary. The news spreads quickly. Gradually, actions become words and words become stories. To come to terms with Oroslan’s death, the villagers recreate his image through stories about his life.

Vesna Award
best supporting role
2019

Milivoj Roš Miki je v svoji igralski bravuri v nekaj minutah filmske pripovedi uspel narediti tako močan vtis, da si filma brez njega ni mogoče zamisliti. Z neverjetno lahkotnostjo prehaja iz nastopaškega pripovedovanja v intimno in grenko izpoved. Miki nam je ponovno pokazal, kako močna in navdihujoča je lahko igralčeva karizma.

Brenk Award
great achievement in filmmaking
2019

Matjaž Ivanišin z vsakim novim filmom izumi novo razmerje fikcije in dokumentarnosti. Oroslan je konstrukt, fiktivni lik, okrog katerega Ivanišin po zgodbi Zdravka Duše splete svojstveno osebno porabsko filmsko poemo.
