Everyday Chronicle

Yugoslavia, 1962 (MIFF 1973, Z is for Zagreb)

Director: Vatroslav Mimica

The film's complex pattern of collage and paint admirably expresses the story line deploring the ultimate absurdity of industrialisation. Far from being depressing, Mimica and Marks are reworking the traditional romantic view of man, pleading that the modern world be more human.

1st Prize. Bergamo, 1962.
