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.

The Wheel
A poetic portrait of sculptors who create their works on the potter's wheel from clay and other natural materials. The theme of the potter's wheel permeates through poetic scenes in which sculptors are captured at work, with their families, hand in hand with nature, and also in vivid images where both the creators and their artifacts are installed in everyday environments.

Painted in the Air
A short experimental film from the early oeuvre of the pioneer of Czech video art, Radek Pilař, combines black-and-white amateur footage of the performance poet Václav Fischer with patterns manually tinted by the author. Abstract shapes playfully interact with movements of the captured characters.

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.

Welcome to Tallinn!
An urban symphony comprising a visual collage of the Estonian capital city. With an emphasis on rhythm, it sets into motion a stream of compositions depicting various buildings and corners of the city. Its primary focus, however, is on the human element as a bearer of action and vitality, capturing the period of political thaw, carefree fun, and the joy of life.

Acceleration
A structural and poetic variation on existential topics such as life, death, anxiety, loneliness, transience and eternity. The film’s poetics draws on its contemplative potential, patchwork structure and repetitive editing patterns that suggest the flow of time and the fleeting nature of human existence through takes of stoned walls, windows, ships, roofs, urban panoramas, trains and cemeteries.

Pression
Šimunić uses double exposure to combine footage of people and scenes from 1970s Belgrade with garish images from television shows containing elements of pornography to create an illusory film. He joins scenes from everyday life with his penchant for erotica. This debut film, which took five years to make, uses visual games to explore the limits of the human perception.

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.

The First Photo of Me Ever Taken
A minute-long self-portrait shows an archival photograph of Milenko Jovanović as a child, relativizing the reliability of historical artefacts in relation to unreliable human memory. Using a flicker effect, the static photograph became animated in time. The author highlights the structural qualities of both these media, the permanence of photographs and the ability of film to capture movement, and their effect on the perception of what is portrayed.

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.

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.
