ALEPH ZETA (XVII): THE STAR 

Ana Buljan | Nizozemska, Hrvatska / Netherlands, Croatia | 2020. | 11’17” | eksperimentalni / experimental

It may be that the story is a reaction to the undefined and the precarious  state of the affairs. It was filmed mostly with untested and very expired 16mm film stock. Filmed in remote and not easily accessible areas of the Panamanian jungle, and also in the Atacama Desert. Like the journey itself, the work, and the material  proved to be  an experiment on spontaneous synchronisation of uncertainties.

THE RAFT

Marko Meštrović | Hrvatska / Croatia | 2021. | 14′ | animirani / animation

The water reached up to our necks, and very soon, over our heads. The mountains became islands and the islands became hills in the darkness of the deep. The palms became sea anemones and the sea anemones remained what they were. The Wall Street was still full of sharks. Venice floated a while longer, and then… If a global catastrophe is a state of mind, then music is the raft.

KAKO RAZGOVARATI S MAMOM? / HOW TO TALK TO MOM?

Dalija Dozet | Hrvatska / Croatia | 2020. | 11′ | eksperimentalni / experimental

Sometimes it is necessary to go to the other side of the world to open the topic of intimacy. Sometimes it is necessary not to shoot a single frame to make a film. Sometimes there is an attempt to create closeness by increasing the distance and sometimes the impossibility to do so tries to camouflage itself with an adventure story. Sometimes I think I speak Chinese. In this travel essay written at the height of the epidemic and just after the earthquake, I asked myself a question and intended to find an answer. Now I realize that I don’t know the answer or that it may not exist at all. Now I understand, maybe we are more similar than I think.

JOŠ UVIJEK NE ZNAM / I STILL DON’T KNOW

Bela Bračko-Milešević | Hrvatska / Croatia | 2020. | 5′ | dokumentarni / documentary

This is a film about trying to reconcile with one’s own home. Or what used to be our home a long time ago. Or, at least, what our family thinks is our home. Or what we no longer see as our own home. Or is this a film about accepting the realization that we are happier somewhere else? This is a film about acceptance, reconciliation and union, but also about loneliness, forgetfulness and growing up.

režija / director Bela Bračko – Milešević | scenarij / screenplay Bela Bračko – Milešević, Luka Bosanac | fotografija / DOP Bela Bračko – Milešević | montaža / editor Bela Bračko – Milešević | producenti / producers Tamara Bilankov, Igor Jelinović | produkcija / production Blank

Mateja Zidarić | Hrvatska / Croatia | 2021. | 12′ | dokumentarni, eksperimentalni / documentary, experimental

To this small shift in one of many Microcosms, I willingly ingrave meaning, using mythology. Mith as a metaphor, or as a means of destruction, of every fright that might cross in.
