Main themes of an animated film “Rivers” based on Czeslaw Milosz’s poem are: time and passing of time. The title rivers are compared to carnality of the main character. I look for traces of them on his body starting from umbilical cord, continuing with fingertip lines and ending on wrinkles covering his face. The inseparable attribute of the main character is his suitcase which becomes his cradle, raft and house. The world around the character is also carnal: river is palms, earth is a woman, rain is tears. This is the world the character travels through.

Once upon a time, there was a country on the back of a giant horse, but it was ruined by stupidity and greed. Now, only the horse’s tail remains of its former glory, while the people live in the shadow of what used to be a happy world. Yet, the memory of the past is still vivid, and a new society is being born. Will the history repeat itself?

Wiener Blut
Zlatko Bourek
Kroatia 2015 | 8 min.

The film represents an author’s own memory of the dawn of the World War II in Germany. Mrs. Sarika is leaving to a Jewish retirement home, something what should have been a quite and peaceful end of life, turned into a terror of holocaust and she becomes a victim as well. The film is visually inspired by art of George Grosz and Otto Dix.

Yoshiro Ishihara (1915–1977), who burst upon the scene of Japanese modern poetry in the mid-1950s, is now remembered as a “poet of silence.” He said “A poem is an impulse to resist writing.” This film is an attempt to seek out the landscape from his poem.
