Project Description

Danube Treasures

Serbia, 2013, single-channel video, 04’53”
color, stereo, no dialogue, aspect ratio 16×9

This is an experimental documentary video about the state of the contemporary world, focused on the waste in the Danube river. The main tool used in the film is the natural light, which changes the visual appearance of the waste and turns it into the treasure of the river. Harshness and poetry reveal the dirtiness of the environment, showing the wisdom of the Earth from an anthropological angle. The poetic frame of the film reflects the passing of time, and questions our future Earth. The abstract and blurry form, which appears in the film, represents fragility, but at he same time remains open to multiple interpretations.
