The beginnings of affirmation of the so-called auteur film in Yugoslavia left traces on Bulajić’s work as well. Instead of national/partisan/working masses and epic proportions, this film brings a drama of a few isolated individuals. This film is characterized by outstanding visual expressiveness and strong naturalist elements. Probably the most unusual film from Bulajić’s opus (along with Čovjek koga treba ubiti / The Man to Kill), Pogled u zjenicu sunca is today a forgotten film and awaits a re-evaluation. In Pula Antun Nalis won the Golden Arena for Best actor. This film was shown in Cannes outside of the official program in 1966.
Other awards: Pula 66' - jury’s diploma to Veljko Bulajić for an “outstanding approach to creating a tragic episode from WW II
