A documentary film by young author Adnan Smajic, titled "My name is Adnan and I will not blow you up", has been officially selected in the category of Regional Competition at the International Documentary Film Festival – ZagrebDox.
This eight-minute documentary is a result of the Punch Int. project, coproduced by the Kratkofil PLUS International Film Festival and Flimmer Film Festival, and it follows the author's story through a number of real-life events. Through a surveillance camera's point of view, the author ridicules social stereotypes which have lead him into numerous conflicts with border officials, police and customs, solely because of one reason – his terrorist-like appearance. Considering that this is the author's first movie, participation at ZagrebDox, which will be held February 21-28, is a huge success and affirmation for Adnan, who has just recently entered the field of directing.

Punch Intl. has been supported by the Swedish Institute.
