The Focal Point

Rewind, 18:00


The stories are always twofold, and that it to say the very least about their nature(s). They are always plural, always subjective, always stacked into our memories in all the vastness of their possible varieties. Our communication is therefore sometimes left

in the middle of the overly articulated chaos to sit and dwell upon everything that has not been said. Can we feel to each other instead of talking? Can we sing? Work? What can we do to be together again?

Vladimir Tatomir, documentary, 30′, Croatia, 2017

lives amongst ourselves, and the centre of the happenings is the doorway of the building. ”Home” is to leave, and to leave is to be free. Those were at least the rules that nobody has written, but that everybody is somehow agreeing with.

Draw a Summer

June, Wong Siu Ling, animation, 4′, China, 2018

It was the summer in 2017. In the hottest summer, every breath was muggy and stuffy. As usual, there were lots of celebrations in the rainy days. Somebody forgot to close the window and the sound of a news seeped into the air on August 17th. The memory of a color three years ago suddenly became vivid. Tears, anger and fear were aroused in this tiny city…

Lucid Dreams, 19:30


The dreamworld has no hours, they begin with “the waking hour”, early in the linear morning of some pastime paradigms and detached worlds.

In these eras that have only now awoken, the eras of connection, virtuality and smudged time and space concepts, one doesn’t always know where to go.

Third Law

Goran Radošević, animation, 6′, Croatia, 2016

In a nameless city populated by featureless residents, which are driven by the energies both alien and insidious, revolving equinox of night and day takes place. Swaying between momentum and dullness, that never-changing cycle is represented by the neon commercials, which command every action of aforementioned residents and create their paradoxical and ouroboric reality.

The Focal Point, 21:00


If we focus our attention to just blurring the boundaries, we will miss out on the unique opportunity – not to define them, as we have been taught to do,

but to explore them and portray them to one another, thus focusing on the point in time that generates the difference (between us).


Blue Summer Symphony

Sinje Köhler, fiction, 29′, Germany, 2017

A public pool, a sociotope. A scene of daydreaming and gentle snoozing. It is a place where everything is fine, or at least it feels like it. The smell of summer is in the air.
