A Film For You

on Tuesday, December 23, 2008
Just one month after the premiere of "Embrace of the Blue", here comes another movie by Ivan Peric and me. This one is exploring similar themes as the previous film (love, madness, alienation, loneliness), but in a totally different style. It's very much an experiment, a story told in two ways through two separate (and yet interconnected) movies shown consecutively. Beside being a love story, it's also a comment about the filmmaking process and creative frustration. There's another important element, a total surprise that I won't spoil here.

The film was shot in a 500-year old house owned by Suncica Perisin Tomljanovic, a young and very talented Croatian painter. She's the main protagonist together with Marko P.Kapitanovic (our regular player), and that's her artwork visible in nearly every scene.

Trailer and "making of" documentary are going to be finished by the end of the year, and a public showing is planned for mid-January. I'll update this post with the links and some additional info. In the meantime, here are several artsy wide-angle screenshots filled with heavy and mysterious symbolism:
