English title: Keepers of the Dead Villages
49’, Digital Betacam
DIRECTOR: Miroslav Mikuljan
PRODUCTION: Gral Film (Croatia)
Not far from Zagreb (Croatia), two elderly men live in a village in which, having become its sole remaining residents, they have assumed the role of caretakers of its abandoned houses. Everything in these abandoned homes, whose occupants have long since moved overseas, has been preserved just as it was at the moment of departure so long ago. Furniture, household items, photographs on the walls – everything remains untouched. These elderly caretakers guide us into the world of a demographic tragedy, cobwebs, dust and transience. Their fingers pass over yellowed letters from these emigrants held in drawers, and suddenly these letters become audible and speak to us directly…
