Skoro ništa: i dalje noć / Almost Nothing: So Continues the Night
Davor Sanvincenti (HR), 2017. eksperimentalni / 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.

Udaljena konstelacija / Distant Constellation
Shevaun Mizrahi (SAD, TUR, NZ) · 2017., dokumentarni / documentary, 80′
This haunted reverie drops us inside an Istanbul retirement home, where the battle-scarred residents bask in the camera’s attention. A creaky – voiced woman confides her personal account of the Armenian genocide. A sweetly deluded pianist performs a composition before confessing his love. A blind photographer fiddles with his flash as he points his own camera back at us. Shevaun Mizrahi’s playful, immaculately controlled film finds hypnotizing rhythms in the residents’ limbo-like state. Meanwhile, outside, ominous construction equipment transforms the land.
