This is a unique cultural event – theatre performance, political rally and public making of a documentary at the same time. In it, the 44 protagonists speak right from the stage of Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall on their own behalf and on behalf of the whole generation. The performance is a result of several months of work and its aim is to map the road this generation went down in the process of development of a society. Lined up in front rows, each and every one of them presents their idea of the last minute of their lives, and then, one by one, they step onto the stage, exposing themselves to the eye of the camera and the audience’s eye. Each protagonist gets exactly as many seconds as their years of age and has to use the short time to tell about the most important minute of their lives. In a series of touching and moving stories of illness and death of the loved ones, war and post-war traumas, stories of transition, happy and unhappy loves, the protagonists bravely share their most intimate and at the same time the universal for all of us.
In the second part of the performance the protagonists step onto political stage. At that point the audience is informed that unless they want to participate in a political rally denying the principles of representative democracy in which the elite speaks on behalf of the silent majority, they can leave the hall. At the 55+ rally there is a rule: one person – one vote. Each protagonist addresses the audience through their political speech, drafted in the process of their interviews. The generation 55+ faces decades of their own silence, reviews the possibilities of social change and admitts their own responsibility for the current state of affairs in this country. 55+ generation has never been so brutally honest so far.
