A metaphor of time and space and how it affects every aspect of our life. A great success for the small cinema production from Montenegro to be selected for Orizzonti Short Competition at the Venice Film Festival in 2015. Dutch Premiere


In the backyards there are sheds, a huge old tree, wild plants with wild offspring, waste scattered around. This is where they spend their time. A decaying building is about to be destroyed and someone may go beyond. Soon one of them becomes aware of the sea.

Een metafoor voor tijd en ruimte en de invloed ervan op elk aspect van ons leven. Een van de grote successen van deze kleine bioscoopproductie uit Montenegro is de selectie voor Orizzonti Korte Concurrentie op het Venice Film Festival 2015.


In de achtertuin staan loodsen, een grote oude boom, wilde planten met wilde nakomelingen en overal ligt afval. Dit is waar ze hun tijd doorbrengen. Een rottend gebouw dat zal worden vernietigd en iemand die daar misschien voorbij gaat. Binnenkort maakt een van hen kennis met de zee.


I wanted to make a film that dealt with the spaces we live in, the microcosm of my home town, time and how we perceive it while we wait in our backyards regardless of whether we take them literally or as a metaphor.
