About the screening:
Marko spends time in the abandoned apartment of his childhood in Belgrade. Traces of the past are being drawn and memories, both idyllic and traumatic, are combined. The family VHS archive shows his universe during 1998 and 1999: gatherings, pets, videogames, and moments of great uncertainty reveal a common life embraced by a historical event.
Q&A with filmmaker Marko Grba-Singh will follow the screening.
Marko Grba-Singh was born in Belgrade, where he is currently pursuing a phd in film directing and serving as the Artistic Director for BELDOCS: Belgrade International Documentary Film Festival.
