Directed by Teona Strugar Mitevska
Berlin Film Festival 2017
Cineuropa Prize Winner at the 18th European Film Festival in Lecce
"Based on a true story, as yet unsolved occurrence, her film provides a sensitive insight into the lives of a young generation that encapsulates the dynamics of a multi-ethnic country with a faltering economy. Cinematographer Agnès Godard’s captivatingly atmospheric images mirror the characters’ lack of orientation – in the trash and kitsch of annihilated values."

Milan and his best friend Petar prepare an adventurous excursion with some other teenagers from the outskirts of Skopje. They are adrenalized for a boys' night out of drinking and horseplay before an early morning fishing expedition.
They are typical teenagers full of sexual and romantic tensions and angst about money and material things. Their night of fun is tainted by ethnic tensions and a visit gone wrong to a teenaged prostitute...

"Teona Strugar Mitevska's fourth feature is her most accomplished and rewarding film to date" Cineuropa
"Mitevska arrives at her message from different places, fortifying it through sometimes sophisticated, and sometimes blunt, means, but cinematically, When the Day Had No Name is a tightly directed film with a rough and strong visual style, and powerful sound design that takes over the task of storytelling in well-chosen places, especially when Jean Paul Dessy's disturbing, tension-creating music kicks in."
