Coming from the Balkans, this imaginative animation deals quite philosophically with the war and its impact on young people who were forced to join the army. The director’s choice of textures and colours along with the unusual camera movements and careful sound design create an exquisite visual style.

“Monuments are good for nothing.” As monuments and museums rise around the fixed camera’s field of vision, “SK 2014” deconstructs a regime’s absurdity. The absurdity of its reading of the political, its need to mythologise itself, its absurd stones. Even in the rhythm of Offenbach, it is the graveyard of a community. Though it may appear grandiose to some.

In a small provincial town the women work while most of the men are unemployed. Whatever their education women can only work in the local factory as seamstresses. Their small salary does not allow them to buy even one of the blouses they make. The film intelligently questions what good globalisation brings us and what may become of our dreams.
