... and THE MISSING FILMS OF ŽELIMIR ŽILNIK
In 2015, Doclisboa organised the first complete retrospective of Želimir Žilnik, a key figure of Yugoslav Black Wave. These four short films, made between 1973 and 1975 in West Germany, were considered lost and, therefore, weren’t shown. The miracle happened: they were recently rediscovered, as well as the material for his second feature, Freedom or Cartoons. Journal About Želimir Žilnik follows the efforts to finish this film fifty years later.
