The Conversation

Based on a true story of a meeting on 4 June 1945 between two powerful men with very opposite philosophies and perspectives on the future of their country; the newly appointed political Leader of Yugoslavia, Marshal Tito and the head of the Catholic Church of Croatia, Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac. Both controversial figures. It is a dangerous time as the Partisans had won the war against the Nazis and taken over the country, with the Red Army of the Soviet Union close at hand to ensure dominance and influence over Eastern Europe.
The basis of the film and words spoken come from an unearthed alleged transcript of the meeting which lasted just one and a half hours.
The meeting is like a game of chess, one man trying to outmaneuver and outsmart the other. The ultimate outcome between the two will not only shape the history of both men and their country, but also the shape of the world to come which to this day remain relevant.
