Dejavu
A narratively inventive image of preparations for moving from a temporary home back to one’s homeland focuses on the topic of perception of time of borderline situations, referring to the story of Kurdish immigrants, many of whom came back to Iraq after Saddam Hussein’s fall, yet there is still one family that, though they set out on a homecoming journey, have never made it home.

HOME
Home seen as an array of experiences, emotions and views. It can be found on the road as well; a stable place is not a condition of its existence. Inner sensation as a defining starting point is reflected in the observations of people and clouds in one place and on the road.

Home Stories
Exposure of narrative patterns in a precise choreography of gestures, movements and facial expressions taken from 1950s' and 1960s' Hollywood melodramas turns our attention to ways of building up tension and formal patterns as well as to women becoming subjects of voyeurism and watching, while the soundtrack emphasizes narrative stereotypes.

Ghosts Before Breakfast
A legendary film from the interwar avantgarde period is an ultimate showcase of experimental methods ranging from the reverse camera motion and time-lapse recording through work with negative images and strange camera angles to various methods of animation. In variously distorted symmetries a house, a tree, weapons, men and hats show up.
