Director Statement

After our last short movie Opsesija (“Obsession”, 2014.) which was made in a serious and dark tone, we decided to make a comic movie. It was challenging because it’s more difficult to achieve a good humorous effect and we also wanted to make a step forward in production in general. Despite of movie’s funny tone, there is a problem lying in the background of the story. The main character blames bad luck for everything that happens to him but never examined if he’s the real problem. Compared to our previous project, Karma is in every way more professional movie, both technically , and in terms of production. However, it is a no-budget film, like our first project.
