An Event to Be Forgotten (2020)

Shot on 16mm film, this visual representation is rooted in archival material and inspired by a poem by Hans Magnus Enzensberger that appears in the film.
The poem speaks of forgotten people, their lives and their deeds. Two archives found in a flea market in Zagreb (Croatia).
One belonged to a famous architect and the other to a famous composer. The film ponders about this event and about human disappearance and forgetfulness.

Moving Elements (2016)

Moving Elements focuses on the creative process that leads to art making.
The car goes through all the stages of the creative artistic process, becoming part of the work of art and a player in the abstract creative process.
The film was made as a tribute to the filmmakers and films made during the golden age of the Zagreb Animation School.
It uses to some extent the visual language characteristic of that period, from the 1960s to the 1970s.
