A sad se spušta veče - Then comes the evening

Maja Novaković
27 minutes

The documentary depicts bittersweet life of two grannies living isolated on the hills of Eastern Bosnia. Nature is the entity with which they speak, listen to and respect. Intangible cultural heritage is emphasized through chants and rituals for taming the adverse weather, hail, and storm. Poetic tone of the frames relies on references from genre scenes of realism paintings.
