In a series of surreal, poetic and silly scenes, we enter into a relationship and attempts at communication between a middle-aged father and his son, who soon turns from a boy into a young man.

Communication //

2019/4 ’50’ ’

Production company: House of Culture “Student City” – Academic Film Center

Directed by: Saša Petrovic

Production: Ivan Velisavljević

A paraphrase of Carl Theodore Drier’s film “The Suffering of Joan of Arc”. By quoting interludes and replicating footage in a new context, a relationship is established between two historical times. Questions of the role of the individual in history, the way in which one in a specific historical context becomes the leader of a whole community, the social dynamics of inclusion in the community and exclusion in its most drastic form.

Parallel Flows //

2020/9 ’30’ ‘

Production company: Verige

Directed and produced by: Luka Papić and Branka Majstorović

Following the flows of thought, the flows of the Internet and the flows of history, one enters into parallel dimensions – the gray zone of reality. Expeditions to the gray zones are always personal, and their results are not always poetic, inspiring or beautiful. Banalities are often revealed here, which then turn into mysteries, which then turn into banalities again.

I Saw / Láttam //

/ 20 ’10’ ‘
Production company: Cinema Film Workshop

Directed and produced by: Zoltan Bicksey

Starring: Nándor Szilágyi, Gábor Bagi, István Berecz, Rolland Resócki, Elizabetta Bicskei

Display of the “sight” of a blind person in a deserted open space. A blind person bumps into the emptiness of a summer wasteland. He touches, feels the light with his palms and face, imagination and beliefs – it is not just a game in the frame, but a short summary of the inner experience of the outside world. The film is a polyphonic intertwining of touching, holding, tripping the Blind Person, as evidenced by the grass, dry reeds and the nest. Numerous little Paradises, people coming out of them, fighting in deadly duels. Killing and rebirth like a whirlwind, dancing masked fragmentary figures, long strides and magnificent stillness pass before the eyes of the Blind Person…
