director: Mykola Peretiatko
original title: Bez nazvy
country: USSR
year: 1990
running time: 8 min.

synopsis

Fragments of a home movie in which the filmmaker captures weekend strolls and tanks rumbling through the city. The visit to memorial places and open nature is an example of an amateur film in which the director places a clear emphasis on details and attempts to create distinctive compositions and augment normal home movie situations with unusual visual motifs.

biography

Physicist and teacher Mykola Peretiako (1953) focuses solely on amateur filmmaking, which is all the more sincere in his urgent desire to record important political moments. In 2013 and 2014 he photographed the Euromaidan, in which he also participated. He remains a political activist.

Robber
Allegorical scenes of village life, clearly inspired by the poetic style of Parajanov, show a father and son, temptation, a deed and punishment, in the mythical setting of a garden. Scenes of country life and animal husbandry are infused with rural lyricism. Apples become figurative tools, and abundance is redeemed through crucifixion.

The Hands
In a short miniature, the author concentrates on her own hands as the most natural creative instrument. Zoomed shots on 8 mm film material capture the filmmaker’s hands in the process of creation. Her hands are portrayed not only as the agent of her art expression, but they themselves become an object of art.

LIFT
A conceptual black-and-white film without sound shows two young women floating above ground over a tennis court layout. Their jerky movements resemble a puppet dance. The specific effect making the impression of levitation was created by letting the girls jump and turn mid-air while capturing their movement.

Going Towards the Spring
A possessed talking spring, a clueless blind man, and wandering humanity, three Fates, and a grand pagan ritual: a dark, poetic, visually bewitching Estonian ballad that can be perceived as a celebration of the archaic world, ecological morality, and as a political allegory on a ritual cleansing for the extinction of an advanced society.

Death of Metalosaurus
The filmmaker travelled regularly by streetcar past a fallen electricity pylon that resembled the skeletal remains of a giant animal. The film, which shows the influence of constructivism and industrial music, is also an analogy for the disintegration of Yugoslavia. It was first shown to the general public when it was named best amateur film at the Baden-Baden film festival in 1989.

Untitled
Children and a cat discover the adult world through all their senses, playfully exploring a library, seawater, an entire flat, and a park. To a playful musical soundtrack, the film comments on the world through a collage of newspaper headlines and magazine photographs, presented as analogous to a home movie.

A socio-critical reflection based on memories from the end of the war and post-war reconstruction.

Transformation
Transformation is a short film crafted by Grzegorz G. Zgraj as part of his final student film dissertation. The film explores the structure of images and the relationship between sound and image. By using zoom and fragmented imagery alongside flute and prepared pianos, Zgraj illustrates the complexity of the visual structure.

Termites
An accidental spill of developer on the negative film resulted in moving splotches whose motion, accompanied by rhythmic banging on a radiator, resembles a swarm of insects. Although Šamec intended his film as a parody of avant-garde movies, it was named best experimental film at the Genre Experimental Film Festival in Zagreb.
