PLANINE / MOUNTAINS
Hrvoslava Brkušić – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 12’ – hrvoslava@gmail.com

The starting point for this work were the slides found at Zora Film, a company that produced educational films in the 1950s. Intended to be used as visual tools during geography classes, these images were taken in different parts of the world. However, the author chooses to work with only one motif – mountainscapes. The film turns into a psycho-geographical journey, leading the viewer into various, sometimes intense inner states.

JEDAN OD MNOGIH / ONE OF MANY
Petra Zlonoga – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 6’ – vanja@bonobostudio.hr

I am one. One of many. One of everyone yet the only one. What is it that I am looking for, that always seems out of reach?

Anita Čeko – Hrvatska / Croatia 2019. – 8’ – anita.ceko@gmail.com

One apple, three toasts and a yoghurt intertwined with an athletic track captured on the pages of old teenage diaries bring up some painful memories.


GRADOVI U KOJIMA NISAM BIO / CITIES I HAVEN’T BEEN TO
Damir Čučić – Hrvatska / Croatia 2019. – 7’ – vanja@bonobostudio.hr

An abstract travelogue around the skylines of cities I have not been to. These are dystopian virtual travels from São Paulo and Dubai to Dhaka and beyond. The images of cities might be abstract, but I have recognized and picked them out of hundreds of thousands of photograms. Far from tourist postcards, these mental images stem from my knowledge and my prejudices, visualized in a flash of abstract figures.


DOPLOVIT ĆE REX / THE REX WILL SAIL IN
Josip Lukić – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 35’ – josip_lukic@yahoo.com

KAKO JE TANJA OSTALA SAMA / HOW TANJA REMAINED ALONE
Mia Sidorov – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 9’ – anita@restarted.hr

Tanja was an everyday scene at her window, from where she was watching the street. The girls playing in the street could, through that window, gain a small insight into her life, which was what remained of a much bigger story.

Lucija Mrzljak, Morten Tšinakov – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 15’ – rutt@joonisfilm.ee

People are waiting for someone special. Someone special is born – a grown man in a suit. They follow the man and cheer his theatrical but utterly pointless performances. In the middle of one performance he makes a mistake and the people who have so far adored him, leave. Left alone, he meets a woman who is made for him.


LOVEBOX

3. RUJNA 2015. / SEPTEMBER 3, 2015

Sara Jurinčić – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 9’ – anita@restarted.hr

All news from the newspapers from September 3, 2015 at that moment became real. The banality of the day and personal memories are blended here in a stew.


IZLAZITE LI VANKA? / DO YOU GO OUT?
Ines Jokoš – Hrvatska / Croatia 2019. – 30’ – supines@gmail.com

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the crowded Dubrovnik city walls, Mile and Jela are alone. They share good days as well as the bad ones. Had they only met earlier, they could have shared their youth, but old age can also be sweet when there is someone to share it with.

Nikica Zdunić – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 17’ – tajana.bakota@yahoo.com

Something happens. Time stops. Two people are trapped in a space of tragedy, where their voices are not reaching one another. But when everything burns to the ground, hope remains.


UDAHNUT ŽIVOT / IMBUED LIFE
Ivana Bošnjak, Thomas Johnson – Hrvatska / Croatia 2019. – 12’ – vanja@bonobostudio.hr

Imbued Life is a film about a young woman’s connection with the life force of nature. She uses her talent for taxidermy to “restore” the animals to their natural habitat. However, the true search for the answers begins when she starts finding rolls of undeveloped film in each of the animals she treats. Her obsession drives her to seek the explanation of the connection she feels, haunting her dreams, as well as her waking moments.


MAČKA JE UVIJEK ŽENSKA / A CAT IS ALWAYS FEMALE
Martina Meštrović, Tanja Vujasinović – Hrvatska / Croatia 2019. – 16’ – vanja@bonobostudio.hr

Through a feminist lens, the filmmakers pay homage to their professor Marija Ujević Galetović – one of Croatia’s most important sculptors. Marija’s life story and views are told through a combination of video footage and animation of her feminine sculptures.


MESO / MEAT
Elvis Lenić – Hrvatska / Croatia 2018. – 18’ – dijana.mladenovic@pu.t-com.hr

Traditional customs of Istria. Singing. Gastronomic pleasures. All of this in the ancient ritual of pig slaughter. What is the significance of meat today? Can we give up on its utilitarian and rudimentary nature due to political, ecological, nutritional and other contemporary trends?!
