This experimental documentary which addresses the materiality and technicality of images and was produced by Croatian public television takes a look at media history, exploring what happens with narratives slumbering in (television) archives when the devices to play them no longer exist. With the participation of Irena Vrkljan, dffb graduate of the first hour, this poetic documentary reflects (television) life in a frequently repressed era – Yugoslavian real socialism. In a way that is now unusually affectionate for the Post-Yugoslav region.
