Sarajevo City of Film 2009

Synopsis
:

A girl – while taking a walk through the city centre – discovers something very strange about the people of Sarajevo. They seem like lifeless ’zombies’, they only come alive for a few seconds to perform a little scene written down for them. She takes it as a joke first and fools around until she comes across someone with a paper: „Kill her!” written on it.

Director’s note

I have always found it absurd how films work. You have a scene and then another one. And nobody knows what happens in between. Of course you can have an idea based on the story and your previous experience as a human being but still, you cannot be sure. If two characters say let’s go home and in the next scene they are in a flat you would think they are home. But how can you be sure? And how did they get there? Did they walk? Or did they fly? Maybe entered a magic portal that transported them to this flat?
