Retiring to the Canary Islands is a pensioner’s dream but when Jadranka and Aleksandar Pavlovic arrive there, they separate and live from then on on different islands, five and a half hours apart from each other. In magnificent images and playful montage sequences the film sketches a paradise with a peculiar slant. Nothing is as it seems here. An unforgivingly open family portrait. Jan Sebening



After numerous internships, exhibitions, and travels, Denis Pavlovic focussed on documentary film directing at the Ludwigsburg Film Academy. Together with Julia Meyer-Pavlovic, he founded the production company Glass Frog Films. MAÑANA SOL is his graduation film.
