Zakaj je Istra tužna
Why Is Istria So Gloomy
- Short Animated Film
"The day when he was creating Istria and the Istrian, God was in a very bad mood," says Nelda Štok Vojska in her short story Why Is Istria So Gloomy. This is a story of a poor Istrian whom God predicted hard work on poor soil and quiet loyalty to ecclesiastical and political masters rather than a bright future. During a heavy storm, the Istrian resorts to the Holy Trinity, asking for mercy. This short story was the basis to bring to life as an animated story the medieval frescos in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Hrastovlje.
