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.

Ping-Pong
This two-minute film, which thoroughly confuses the viewer’s senses, is dominated by the use of the split-screen technique – one possible way of working with video. The footage of ping-pong players from three different angles creates spatial paradoxes that are combined to create a continuous match in real time.

KVN

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.

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.

Litany of Happy People
This originally censored musical film is a satirical depiction of the inhabitants of Vojvodina, a rural region of Serbia characterized by its multi-ethnic population. Although it won two awards in Oberhausen, it was banned in Yugoslavia and Godina was long prevented from making experimental film. „I have always tried to find a new language or a form to implement into the film.” K. Godina

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.

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.

The Only Way
A view of the socio-political reality of the Republic of Latvia before it was liberated from Soviet domination. The monochrome collage subvert the symbols of totalitarian power, shatters and breaks down propagandistic images of workers and former political representatives, and reveals the emptiness of their fragile ideological convulsions.
