Vladislav Knežević takes archive photos from an illustrated entertainment magazine of 1929 as the basis for his experimental-animated film, thus creating an associative, yet disturbing “film journal”.

If the new world ever existed, it is still hidden way behind the horizon. An analogue clock is ticking away the last seconds before world crisis, while a noble patina covers fragments for archaeologists of memory.
A silent relief in between two wars; a time of diffident bodies, of melancholy leisure, of secret divisions of the world.
It is 1929. Peace before an enormous explosion.
