Biography[edit]

Rajko Grlić was born in 1947 in Zagreb, SR Croatia, FPR Yugoslavia. His father was Danko Grlić, famous Croatian philosopher. Grlić's family by father's side came to Zagreb from Banat, Serbia in the 17th century, while his mother Eva (née Izrael) is from Jewish family of Sarajevo.[2] His Jewish descent once received negative publicity during the Croatian War of Independence.[3]

He graduated from the Film Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU)[4] at the same time as Emir Kusturica, Serbian film director. Both had Yugoslav passport at that time. During Croatian War of Independence Grlić moved to the USA.
