World premiere of “Secret Ingredient” at Thessaloniki film festival


Film “Secret Ingredient” by Macedonian director Gjorce Stavreski will have its world premiere at the 58. Thessaloniki International Film Festival on Thursday.

Vele can’t afford to buy the expensive medications for his father, who has cancer. Desperate, he steals marijuana from some criminals, makes a cake with it and gives it to him, hoping it will reduce his pain. His father’s health miraculously improves, but Vele is suddenly confronted by their neighbors, who demand the recipe for the “remedial” cake, and by the criminals, who want their drugs back. The greatest challenge, however, is to persuade his father that his life is worth living for.

The film is produced by “Fragment Film”, in co-production with Greek “Graal S.A.”, and financially supported by Macedonia’s Film Agency.

The cast includes Blagoj Veselinov, Anastas Tanovski, Aksel Mehmet etc.

Gjorce Stavreski is an award-winning filmmaker from Skopje. His documentary Adam and Eve got the Special Jury Mention Award at ZagrebDox film festival in Croatia. His short fiction At Daybreak was in official competition at Clermont-Ferrand film festival, and his short fiction Audition Material won the Best Short Fiction Award at Bogoshorts, Colombia. His feature film debut Secret Ingredient won two international awards in the pre-production stage.
