Croatia 2018 17’.
Experimental film NOWHERE poetically explores the personal level of experience of departure/return and rebuilding identities. Dramaturgy consists of two backbones – a scene portraying a sculpture “Before the dawn” by Neli Ružić and the monument by Bogdan Bogdanović “The Guardian of Freedom”, both of which were set up at the Klis fortress during the different moments in history, given up to entropy and social changes. The conditions in which these sculptures have been found activate the archaeology of time, invisible and erased history.
