Liberation in 26 Pictures

dir. IVAN RAMLJAK, MARKO SKOBALJ 

A short meditation on the resilience of life in 26 perfectly set pictures.

A forgotten old partisan leads a lonely life. His only interests are observing his neighbours and watching Sumo wrestling on his antique television set. One day he notices something through his WW2 binoculars that will set him on his last guerilla mission.
