različni avtorji / various / 75 min

Hardly Working
Total Refusal (Total Refusal)
Austria, 2022, 20'34''

An ethnographic exploration of the work and life realities of non-player characters, the digital extras in video games. Their labour loops, activity patterns as well as bugs and malfunctions paint a vivid analogy for work under capitalism.

Republika / The Republic
Antonia Begušić (Zagreb film)
Croatia, 2023, 11'15"

- Well, Adeimantus, has our state now grown to its full size? - Perhaps. - Then, where in it shall we find justice or injustice? If they have come in with one of the elements we have been considering, can you say with which one? - I have no idea, Socrates; unless it be somewhere in peoples dealings with one another.”
(Republic, Plato)

Обезличаване / Depersonalization
Spartak Jordanov (Screening Emotions)
Bulgaria, 2022, 6'58"

The film interprets the theme of the loss of personality. The events flow into each other, degenerate in the logic of some irreversible and unnatural randomness. The tree grows and buries its crown back into the earth, the world returns to primal matter, the consumer is consumed.

’Prototipo
Tina Frank, General Magic (neodvisni/independent)
Austria, 2023, 4'20"

Exploding with saturated light, colour, movement and synaesthetic sound, ’Prototipo is a perception shifting audiovisual work based on two live recordings by General Magic ∞ Tina Frank in 2022 in Vienna and London.

Kompozycja z przeżyć istniejących / Composition of Existing Experiences
Joanna Szlembarska (Likaon/Polish National Film School in Lodz)
Poland, 2023, 7'25"

The excerpts from the life of a Woman and a Man are merged with images heralding impending danger.

Маріуполь. Сто ночей / Mariupol. A Hundred Nights
Sofija Melnik (Gogol Fest/Ogalala Kreuzberg/Theatromania)
Ukraine, Germany, 2023, 7'25"

It is a story of a little girl, who wakes up on 24 February 2022 because of the air alert and tries to find someone living in the burning city. The main character is based on the story of Alice, a 4-year-old girl, who stayed in the blocked Mariupol during the first months of Russian invasion.

D'une peinture… à l'autre / From one Painting… to Another
Georges Schwizgebel (Studio GDS/Georges Schwizgebel/RTS/Miyu Production)
Switzerland, France, 2023, 3'10"

An immersion in art through two paintings on the same subject created half a century apart.

Haljina za finale / Her Dress for the Final
Martina Meštrović (Kreativni sindikat)
Croatia, 2023, 8'45"

One day, my granny dyed her wedding dress black. She wanted to be buried in it.

Antipolis
Kaspar Jancis (Nukufilm)
Estonia, 2023, 25'40"

Some people believe that the Earth is flat. And then there are those who think that somewhere there, under the Crust of the Earth, another civilization exists. The events of Antipolis take place in the world inside the Earth. Unlike some of the well-informed inhabitants of our civilization, the occupants of Antipolis have no idea that they are living inside a gigantic globe. Getting to know this is a sobering shock.
