Marko Lončarević is a Sarajevo-born filmmaker currently based in Vienna. His style of filmmaking is raw, personal, direct, and without compromise. He draws inspiration from a range of sources, including extreme cinema, survival horror video games, mental and physical illnesses, and the dark corners of the internet.
Lončarević aims to create a visceral and emotional connection with his audience. He is not afraid to explore difficult and uncomfortable themes, and his work often challenges viewers to confront their own experiences of pain, trauma, and vulnerability.
At the same time, Lončarević's films also offer a sense of catharsis and transformation. By confronting the darker aspects of our experiences, he suggests that we can begin to find meaning and purpose in even the most difficult of circumstances.
Lončarević's most recent project, "The Shell," is a short documentary that takes viewers on a hellish journey into the world of Alzheimer's disease and old age. The film is a harrowing look at the effects of aging on the mind and body, and the horrors that can come with it. Lončarević chose to create "The Shell" without a crew to minimize any potential intrusion on the lives of his subjects. This decision further underscores the filmmaker's commitment to creating powerful works while respecting the privacy and dignity of the people he portrays.
