Heretic, the boutique film house producing and selling films on a global scale, announced today the acquisition of world sales rights for Berlinale Panorama title, WORKING CLASS HEROES by director Miloš Pušić, starring EFA winner, Jasna Đuričić.
The film follows Lidija (Jasna Đuričić), a cold-hearted business woman working for a construction investor of dubious morals. Lidija’s main task is to oversee the work of the illegal workers working on the construction site and protect the image of the company at all costs. In the meantime, the workers are brought face to face with the brutal reality of capitalism. Unpaid and exhausted, they have to take their fate in their own hands. When they decide to stand up for their rights, the construction site becomes the setting, where social classes and morals clash.
Five years in the making, WORKING CLASS HEROES, starring EFA winner (for QUO VADIS AIDA?), Jasna Đuričić, exposes relentless corruption, capitalism and injustice in a game of “big fish eats small fish”.
Giorgos Karnavas, Co-founder and Producer at Heretic comments: “When we first watched WORKING CLASS HEROES, we immediately felt the urgency to be part of their team and share this story with the world. It carries a message that needs to be delivered. It is a film that places ordinary people in the spotlight to tell a wholesome story about the dark side of capitalism. And all that with a blackly comic tone and with Jasna Djuricic delivering once again a mesmerising performance”.
