Water supply
A poetic look at the work of a man from an Abkhazian port town who looks after the nearby woods and hillsides. The expansive hilly pastures, mountains, animals, and rivers form the setting for a rural idyll and symbolist scenes in which the man frees a wolf from a trap or cleans a creek bed.

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.

Game
A sophisticated game of cat and mouse in which the constantly moving camera is the hunter and the young woman wandering the streets of Ljubljana to the sounds of jazz music is the prey. The film spent fifty years hidden under the bed of one of the filmmakers and was first screened at a meeting of Slovenian amateur filmmakers.„All my films have certain message and only important thing for me is and was to catch a spirit of time.“ K.

Untitled
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.

Endless Day
This playful comedy about one adventurous day in Estonia in the 1970s startled the censorship authorities to such an extent with its spontaneity and original cinematic language that they not only banned the film, but ordered its complete destruction. The film was successfully hidden from the “threat of the regime” and after 1990 it was released to the world.

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.

DM1978 Talks to DM2010
In this film, the director appears in two roles – on a television screen as a young man and in a recording studio in the present day. By answering questions that he asked himself more than thirty years earlier, he bridges the chasm of time and discusses how our personal identity is formed.

Anthony’s Broken Mirror
A lonely magician becomes the victim of his own illusions when he yearns for a mannequin in a shop window that is transformed into a young woman. The tragic ending shows the dangers arising from coveting an object of desire and the treacherous nature of the human psyche, which Makavejev had previously studied as an academic discipline. The soundtrack has been lost and in 2011 was replaced by a composition by Serbian composer Zoran Simjanović.

Fluctuations
Fluctuation is a movement that is divided into four chapters 1. Thinking space, 2. Moving thoughts, 3. Dissolution, 4. Specks. I base the form of the moving image on Sonata No. 2 by Polish composer Frédéric Chopin (1810–1849). Fluctuation is not related in any other way to the Sonata. It was showed as a video installation on a single floating screen in a black space.

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.

Spatial Deformation (Spiritual Expression)
In the Spatial Distortion, Petr Skala elaborates on the principles of abstract expressionism and transposes the method of action painting onto camera-free experimental film. A special spatial effect is achieved using an optical printer producing loops and multiple exposures of drawings, paintings and engravings made directly in the film material.
