Mrduja is an island, stationed halfway between the island of Brač and Šolta, valiantly guarding the Strait of Split. Once a year, these couple of hundred square meters of rock covered whit macchia shrub and cypress trees and adorned with a fort, Renaissance-Baroque church and lighthouse, become the object of intense dispute between the inhabitants of Brač and Šolta, especially those from Milna and Stomorska.
One this day, the people of Milna and Stomorska, literally tie their boats to each side of Mrduja and start tugging. In this satirical tug of war they each try to pull the little island to their respective side and claim it as their territory. The „war“ ends when a winner is proclaimed and awarded ownersship over Mrduja for a year. The Tugging of Mrduja embodies the irony and the self-deprecating humor of the islanders. It s a metaphor about the past and a lesson for the future.
