Exit Clause to Yugoslavia

director: Oleh Kachmar, Andrii Tuziak
original title: Putivky v Jugoslaviju
country: USSR
year: 1987
running time: 2 min.

synopsis

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.

biography

The proliferation of home video in the 1980s led to the creation of the Ukrainian group Paranoia Pictures, a studio of amateur filmmakers including Oleh Kachmar and Andrii Tuziak. Most Paranoia Pictures’ productions were comedies, usually based on totalitarian situations, e.g. The Art Committee, or parodies of contemporary box-office hits.

A Doc. Film
A film recording of a performance by OHO involving the residents of Ljubljana in which the act of winking an eye is compared to the functioning of objects such as traffic lights or headlamps. The resulting film creates the impression that the Slovenian capital is a living being that interacts with people and responds to a winking person by winking back through seemingly lifeless objects.

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.

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.

Personal Cuts
By combining footage of herself cutting up stockings stretched over her head with various images from television, Iveković confronts social stereotypes and propaganda in Tito’s Yugoslavia with the concept of personal identity. Each new cut is followed by another piece of television footage until her entire face is revealed.

Myocardial Infarction
An award-winning film at the International Festival of Short Films in Oberhausen in 1968 uses artistic means to document the experience of a heart failure. The film’s rhythm does not work only with the dynamic editing and a disrupted shot composition, but also with sound effects and music illustrating the rapid heart rate of an ill heart. By irony of fate, the debut’s director Wojciech Wiszniewski died of a heart attack aged 34.

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.

Vird
Vird is a film based on the idea of “manual cutting on set” using only lights to make cuts in the video. The only post-production was the composition of a soundscape fitting to the movements and cutting the frame down to smaller frames that would play a fraction of a second later or sooner than the next small frame. Vird is the result of wanting to break up movement in time, effected by surrealism and the “bad” girls in Věra Chytilová’s Daisies, and using the new way of editing.
