Filmske novosti 63, Nika Autor

video, 39’, 2017.

Filmske novosti 63 koristi format filmskih novosti i nastoji da pozicionira i razume jednu scenu – isečak videa snimljenog na čuvenoj liniji voza Beograd-Ljubljana, kojom migranti sada putuju, ne u kupeima, nego između točkova voza. Filmske novosti 63 se bavi vizuelnim ispitivanjem železničkih pruga i istražuje njihove istorijske, društvene i političke narative. Esejistički i asocijativni elementi Filmskih novosti 63 povezuju ovaj istorijski narativ sa našom potragom za srećom, idejom putovanja u trenutnoj društvenoj konstelaciji, u kojoj je naša čežnja za srećom previše često vezana za ideju putovanja – ili pak za potrebu da se obezbede osnovna sredstva za preživljavanje.

Newsreel 63, Nika Autor

video, 39’, 2017.

Newsreel 63 follows newsreel-related practices and tries to position and understand a particular image – a shred of video taken on the once famous Belgrade – Ljubljana rail-line, where refugees now travel not in couchettes but between the train’s wheels. Newsreel 63 drifts into a visual investigation of railways and explores its historical, social and political narrative. The essayistic and associative elements of Newsreel 63 link this historical narrative to our pursuit of happiness, the idea of voyage in the current social constellation, where our longing for happiness is all too often tied to the idea of travelling somewhere – or indeed the need to secure the means for mere basic survival.
