 CrnaZorica2LOVELESS ZORITSA - posterCrna Zorica (Loveless Zorista)    

Australian Premiere

Everyone who falls in love with Zoritsa dies in strange way. Outraged villagers in her highly superstitious Serbian village have already dubbed her the “kiss of death”—but there might be an exception. When a new police officer, who doesn’t believe in “mumbo jumbo,” assumes the case of the missing men, he becomes skeptical of Zoritsa’s supposed evil powers. In his quest to solve the case of the missing men, he’s led to question whether Zoritsa is a serial killer, or just a cursed woman in search for love.

This dark fairytale comedy in the vein of Young Frankenstein about “cursed” love answers the question of whether or not love truly does conquer all things.
