The Very Last Day And not to forget to mention that very last day of the festival presented another Serbian film at the Special Screening Section directed by film director Saša Radojević Narcis i eho (Narcissus and Echo). This is a kind if an experimental film with several layers with the atypical form, and it befits an unusual presentation to be presented as an open work that will be developed in all directions and the term new media implies a permanent part of the intervention. The film is inspired by the eponymous Serbian opera Narcissus and Echo by Anja Djordjević whose music was the main impetus for director Radojević (to be) preserved via adaptation. With the recording of the opera performed 2002 , the film contains the feature parts that present a professor and a group of students on a field trip to a grassy overgrown part in the park, looking for the best place for film or stage setting of the opera "Narcissus and Echo." The heroes of this "film within the movie" are members of a group whose everyday neo-punk interest for music occasionally forms an ancient myth in film mixed with actual opera recording. Overlapping experience of students celebrate self-love and the inability to suppress the vanity, accepting very little real human contact.

The film is perfect for gallery presentations!
