Video title:
Reconstruction 2008, 15:00

The story develops as a collage of personal associations shown
through personal memory, thoughts and attitudes. It comments life, work, influence and love life of J.B. Tito, as well as my childhood during his rule. Also how we are, all, marked with memories from that time. Taboo time from today point of view.

Video titel:
Between Love and Duty
2008, 6:25

Complex relation between my mother and her stepmother comes to absurd every morning during their usual rituals. Their communication is emotionaly mute. They never verbalise what they realy think and feel. Mixed feelings of love and hate, pleasure and pain, lot of
missunderstanding, unresolved emotions, dependance…everything becomes trivial because they have to do that „job“.
My mother’s role is very difficult. But she just has, above all, huge sense of duty. Mother is longing for love and gratitude, granny doesn’t show her any love and compasion. Anyway, my mother is doing her duty perfectly well.

Title: My Way
The title and initial idea comes from furious Sid Vicious’ performance of the song «My Way».Specific spitful way of singing evokes track of rebellion but yet lack of stranght to change anything. It, usually, happens in everyday life.
