Day after day the sun shimmers over the harbour and the cafés – the eternal Croatian summer as a drawn diary. Dynamics are created by the repetitive use of original sounds and the increasing reduction of the animated drawings: sketches turn into graphical abstractions, objects into blotches of colour, free forms into geometrical ones. And a summer that is more than the sum of its parts slowly takes shape in the viewer’s head.

When Bill Babbitt realizes his brother has committed a crime he agonizes over his decision- should he call the police? Utterly unobtrusive, the narrative reveals not only the tragic story of a family but also a pseudo-democratic society where people fall through the cracks. With only a few lines and muted colours the rotoscoped images that linger in the memory open an unusual perspective on America.

The chronicle of an oral cavity: from inside, wildly traced, literally, with the tip of the tongue. An X-ray of the body decaying over time, fascinated by the amalgam of food, tongue, throat and stomach. Nostalgic feelings for what was lost and demands to be recovered by an obsession with perfection, which, in fact, leads to further destruction. This film damages the enamel of the conscious mind and provokes a subconscious avulsion, painful as the sound of a dental drill.
