Croatian filmmaker Rajko Grlic says the way right-wingers are taking over politics across the world is worrying.
"I think that we are on the edge of something quite unpleasant. In Europe, with all those people coming from the east, unhappy people trying to find a way to survive, Europe is becoming increasingly intolerant. There is intolerance all over the world now," Grlic told PTI.
"They don't want to take them in. They want to throw them out. They forget that every few centuries some nations face some troubles. Jews in the Second World War, now Syrians," he added.
Grlic, director of films like "Bravo Maestro", "Three for Happiness" and "The Border Post", says the formula which is working today in politics is that of hatred where people are trying to "close the society."
"Some big European countries owned half of the world, including India, and now they are so surprised that people from other countries are coming there. They are trying to close their society.
"The right wings are winning the game all over the world because they are saying 'throw them out, throw the foreigners'. Now, something similar will start to happen in America."
His latest film "The Constitution" was screened at the 47th edition of international film festival of India (IFFI) recently.
