Directed by Ivan Martinac
Yugoslavia, 1968
Avant-Garde, Short


Ivan Martinac is deemed to be a complete mystery even amongst the most obscure filmmakers from former Yugoslavia. This Split-born poet has left a legacy of idealistic seeking for the “pure” cinema, as in his structuralist approaches in conjuring philosophical meditations on life and death.

  • kartina obskura's rating of the film Acceleration

    now the movement and the flow of this film is weird. i will dare to even say brilliant. slow beginning, images of the city, people, train, smoke...everything seems to go in it's "natural", "real" time - but the subject feeling of that same time is completely different. in a moment images change faster i thought it was 2-3 minutes after the film started when i saw "the end". no wonder he took t.s.eliot's sentence...
