A never-before-seen poster for “The Waiting Room,” Igor Drrljaca’s sophomore feature, has arrived. The film combines fictional accounts with biographical elements into an emotional and sometimes unsettling film. “The Waiting Room” had its World Premiere at Locarno and is now headed for its North American debut at TIFF as part of the Contemporary World Cinema slate. 

The official synopsis reads, “Jasmin, once a successful actor in former Yugoslavia, now lives in Toronto with his second wife and young son. While juggling a construction job and a busy audition schedule, he dreams of re-launching an old televised stage show that made him famous in his homeland. When he is cast in a role that triggers recollections of the civil war, he is forced to reconcile his current reality with memories of his past success.” 

The film has also just been picked up for Canadian distribution by A71 entertainment. See the exclusive poster below.
