By FNE Staff

    {mosimage}ZAGREB: Director/screenwriter Branko Schmidt is in postproduction with the dramatic feature film Cannibal Vegetarian, with an expected completion date of February 2012. The 85-minute film is produced by Stanislav Babic for Telefilm.

    The film's central character is Markan, an ambitious and amoral gynaecologist at Croatia's leading fertility clinic, whose own practice suffers when he tries to destroy a colleague's success.

    Schmidt's most recent feature film, The Melon Route (2006), won numerous awards in Croatia and was screened at international festivals worldwide.
