Marko Grba Singh: Rampart (2021)
Discussion: Ognjen Glavonić and Marko Grba Singh; moderator: Aleksandra Sekulić

Film „Rampart“ is produced in 2021, and the director Marko Grba Singh described it as a film about the end of the childhood, or the farewell to the space of the childhood. Film relies on the archive, but brings it to the continious reference to the contemporainety. We will talk with the author about the narrative practices which were the result of the work with the archive, and the specific cohesive aspects of the sound and editing.
