A GOOD DAY’S WORK is Bosnian-Turkish-Slovenian coproduction. It was shot by celebrated Croatian cinematographer and music video director, Radislav Jovanov Gonzo, while Emina Kujundzic took the credit for costume and set design. A GOOD DAY’S WORK was Turk’s second, but the Slovenian writer-director is currently preparing his third feature film.
The film was funded by the Sarajevo City of Film for Global Screen, a feature film production initiative launched in 2016 by the Sarajevo film Festival and Turkish national broadcaster TRT.
