When we introduced the East of Eden section last year, the aim was to showcase the best short films from countries with similar themes and production circumstances to those in the region of former Yugoslavia. With this idea, we presented several short films from Eastern Europe, of various genres and forms.
Dušan Makavejev (1932–2019) se v zgodovino filma vpisuje z velikimi črkami. Enfant terrible, provokator, dušeslovec, erot, subverzivni poet, nadrealist, antiideolog – vse to so oznake, ki jih lahko pripišemo temu velikanu jugoslovanskega filma.
If we were to look for a common topic among the various themes that course through the selection of the best shorts, we would, apart from a few exceptions, find it in a dual tendency.
The world had to take its time before two masterpieces were able to evolve – a film and a girl.
When we started with the East of Eden section, the idea was for this sidebar to represent a bridge between the programme and the fledgling industry section of FeKK by screening films from countries of similar production circumstances and themes to those in the former Yugoslavia.
If we sincerely contemplate the experience of watching a good two hundred and more short films that have arrived from all the countries of ex-Yugoslavia, I can say that there is a good but emotionally exhausting month behind us.
There might be two interconnected tendencies that strike the eye at this year’s selection of Slovenian shorts: on the one hand, the scarce representation of professional production and, on the other, the boom of experimental films, which represent over a half of the FeKK SLO section.
