PandemiJa

PANDEMIJA - this is the diploma, due to the pandemic made in a film format. The performance itself and the means used in it are a loud cry of young people against the new and sterile reality that surrounds them. Inability to practice a profession, fear, frustration, and the absurdity of today's times pushed the creators to present a dreamlike collage performance in which the camera becomes a partner and a puppet. By using mixed techniques, we move into the world of the pandemic, in a distorted mirror we reflect on the mundane of life, but also face the greatest traumas and fears of this time.
