A young woman goes through her morning coffee ritual. The surrounding space is invisible, characteristic of the passage from dream into waking state. Only when the smell of coffee fills her home the objects around her become real.

The protagonist of the movie is the small and crowded Croatian bus terminal in Rijeka the living-room of a town on the threshold of changes.
We follow the daily routines of the employees at the station’s shops, the café, and the ticket office, the bus drivers and cabbies, the homeless and the drifters, the permanent visitors and the passersby, to discover a sporadic community in its vain, but persistent efforts at patching up the gaps of a worn-out system.

The Settlers - Our New Neighbours with Guns: a documentary that deals with the Jewish occupation of the Palestinian territory in the West bank. The politics of colonization of that territory is illegal by the International law, nonetheless, the settlements are growing each day while the settlers are walking around armed, terrorizing the local community. This fact has been continuously ignored by the media as well as the daily non-violent actions,
demonstrations and activities of the palestinian civil society, especially the International Solidarity Movement whose volounteers lead us through the story of this film.
What’s going on behind the walls? Is it worth demonstrating or are the Palestinians only keeping pieces of their dignity? The Settlers’ aim is to deconstruct the stereotypes and prejudices of the Palestinian suicide bomber by portraying the subtle ethnic cleansing that takes place in the West Bank.

Film ističe problem komercijalizacije visokoškolskog obrazovanja (i politike obrazovanja u širem smislu) refleksijom na blokadu nastave Filozofskog fakulteta u Rijeci 2009. Kroz razmišljanja protagonista o besplatnom školovanju, solidarnosti, studentskom aktivizmu, ulozi pojedinca u društvu i mogućnosti promjene vladajuće paradigme novca kao jedinog mjerila uspjeha, film u konačnici postavlja pitanje postoje li uopće temelji za aktivni društveno-politički angažman kod studenata danas.
Plenumovie points out the problems of commercialisation of higher education system in particular and educational policy in general by reflecting on the university sit-in that took place in 2009 in Rijeka, Croatia.
It questions the romantic idea of student-activist and ponders whether there is real basis for an active socio-political engagement of students today.
