Tomislav P. (42) is a co-owner in a residential high-rise in Zagreb. Motivated by accidentally attending the co-op meeting, his experiences there, and the ‘war’ on the building’s notice board between the two candidates running for the tenants representative, he decides to delve a little deeper into the building relations, common resources and their expenditure. However, the parliament election year sets the pace of the residential building election to an incredible extent. Resources, gas separators, damaged tins, building’s dereliction, all these matters give way to those seeking ideological answers to the questions of where you were in 1991, are you a leftist or a rightist, our man or their man. Seemingly a low-tension election prove just the opposite. Everyday conflicts arise and anxiety builds up among Tomislav P.’s building tenants.

Tomislav Pulić was born 1972 in Šibenik. He graduated from the Zagreb Faculty of Political Sciences in 1998. Since 1992 he has been working for HRT. His managerial duties reached their peak between 2009 and 2011 when he acted as the Chief Producer at Croatian Television and CEO at ORFEJ from 2011 to 2013. Since 2013 he has been the executive producer at the Department of Culture, Art and Religion. „Candidate“ is his debut film.
