KRIK (1978)

Director: Ivko Sesic
Year: 1978
Time: 9 mins
Music: S. Habic
Eye of Sound: A very straightforward and somewhat disturbing short film. Serbian director Ivko Sesic composes a portrait of the Belgrade Zoo, built within the walls of an ancient fortress, while we listen to the dry and melancholic electroacoustic music of S. Habic. The camera focuses on details of the sturdy walls and on footage of the idle, empty life of caged animals. Animals like us, deprived of their dignity and vitality, not only for the amusement of the powers that be but also for the pleasure of dominance and control.
