Director Bio

Born and raised in New Zealand, Slavko founded screen activist group Sabineprogram in 2012 and created a new genre (propumentary) for his debut feature film Propaganda, which Michael Moore awarded the top prize at the Academy-qualifying Traverse City Film Festival in 2013. Slavko wrote, produced and directed another feature, Propaganda, and two television documentaries, The Nip Tuck Trip and One 16th


A delightful, amusing, and thoroughly absorbing documentary that takes an inside look into the fierce rivalries, club infighting, oddball judging and problematic birds that have to be dealt with by an enthusiastic bunch of New Zealand chicken breeders, all determined to come out on top at the 2015 National Poultry Show. They may be bonded by their love for their feathered friends, but there are troubles at the heart of the 148-year-old Christchurch Poultry, Bantam and Pigeon Club as rival breeders bid to run their venerable institution.
