A Misunderstanding


Directed by Ante Babaja
Yugoslavia, 1958


The local postal service makes a mistake delivering a small figurative sculpture to a miller and a miller stone to a museum. The museum curator, not aware of the mistake, starts celebrating this abstract shape, influencing even the local artists to imitate that kind of shapes when portraying people.
