Upon return to a dilapidated home, an artist feels caught between the war-torn past and a bleak future. The screening will be followed by Q&A with the director Bojana Radulović.


After seventeen years, artist Bojana Radulovic returns to her childhood home in Montenegro. The house is small, made of stone, and in a state of disrepair. Looking into the past through the plastic sheets with which Radulovic wrapped the house, she sees the interior. The family pictures hanging on the wall, memories and snippets of a life long gone. Once a family home, the house is now at mercy of developers and political changes. Being caught between the past and uncertain future, the artist feels rootless despite having a physical home.

Director’s statement

I found it very difficult to go into the house again. I had to overcome the fear of memories of my past so that I can live in the present, that is, the future… The film was an attempt to open the Pandora box and to use and film live dreams.
