Entering the Sea

director: Leonid Osyka
original title: Ta, shho vhodyt' u more
country: USSR
year: 1965
running time: 16 min.

synopsis

This important film presaging the Ukrainian poetic school was intended as Osyka’s graduation work, but the diploma committee deemed it too formalist and rejected it. A panorama in a series of inquisitive shots of a crowded beach serves as a prologue for a lyrical study of the movements, faces, and bodies of the men, women, and children; of the sun and the sea.

biography

The films of Leonid Osyka (1940–2001) are characterised by deep concentration and the ability to say more with images than with words. Along with Sergei Parajanov, he is considered a leading representative of the Ukrainian school of poetic film.

Home Village
Sunlit images of kolkhoz farm workers during the harvest are interspersed with commentary celebrating rural collectivization and modernization. Yet strong lyrical tones of a disappearing world, old age, and loneliness permeate the ideological undertones of the film. Old villagers and half-demolished buildings symbolize the disappearing villages, deep-rootedness, and love for the land.

The Idylls of Kirtimai
An observational anthropological study follows the life of the residents of the largest Roma settlement in Lithuania. Instead of the usual tendency to draw attention to their poverty, lack of education, and discrimination, the film focuses primarily on an ideologically unencumbered representation of everyday patterns of life.

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.

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.

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.

Minningar
In her audio-visual essay, the author looks back on her childhood, exploring how memories affect her present experience. The original 8 mm footage transforms into video and its pixels deform memories into stains resembling oil paintings.

Time
The gap between the human microcosm and the macro view of universal time is depicted in an associative montage using rhythm and tempo as a significant element. Against a backdrop of ebbing and flowing in nature, a human anthill frantically teems, pulsing with the cycles of waking and sleeping, birth and death, sunrise and sunset.

19th Nervous Breakdown
A short film named after a Rolling Stones’ song shows improvised performances, during which the members of the Slovenian art collective OHO make drawings on a concrete wall erected in the middle of a field, spontaneously running, dancing and finally putting on a cardboard box with only their legs sticking out. The film promotes OHO’s artistic and philosophical approach to the so-called reism, i.e. a philosophy in which objects are viewed as equal to human beings and not only recognised for their utilitarian value.

Exit Clause to Yugoslavia
A performative miniature in which the filmmakers – students of the Polytechnic Institute in Kharkov – document their public street performances. Their unselfconscious playfulness seems an unwitting omen of the fall of the Communist regime.
