Almost Nothing: So Continues the Night / Davor Sanvincenti, 2017, experimental 12’
For us, a thought always presupposes a society, a culture, and, above all, the consciousness of time. The film revolves around a light bulb like the Earth around the Sun. Light makes the film visible. In the orbit of the film tragedy and our reality, the image resists the cruelty of the experiment.
Occupied cinema / Senka Domanović, 2018, documentary, 87`
Occupied cinema is a film about guerrilla action initiated by young activists taking over privatized cinema Zvezda in Belgrade, Serbia. This activity united various social groups that shared the same ambition – to change the reality in which they live. However, their views about how that reality should look like were not the same.
By the end of September, during the second Unseen mini film festival, audience will have the opportunity to see three great film selections.
The festival jury (Ana Opalić, Ivana Ivković and Srdjana Cvijetić) made a selection of 17 films chosen within the ones applied to the open call, in line with the thematic focus of this year’s festival and the consideration of alternative geography of the film. The film selection of the cinema revitalization network Kino Mediteran will also be shown, as well as the film selection made by Veton Nurkollari, the artistic director of DokuFest. This international documentary and short film festival, is the largest film festival in Kosovo. Each year the festival brings the cinemas and improvised screening venues around historic city center of Prizren a selection of more than 200 hand picked films from around the world.
