A Brief Excursion

Igor Bezinović
Kratki izlet
Croatia 2017 / 75’
1945 Arábia

A summer music festival-the sort where they remind you about hygiene and common sense. Young people having a good time, alcohol disappearing down thirsty throats, sweat evaporating under a cloudless sky. The concerts soon become nothing more than a backdrop for drunken convulsions and empty conversations. As the days start to melt into one another, an odd fellow suddenly throws out an unexpected idea: let's visit the nearby monastery! He leads a group through woods, fields, and towns that look as if the Industrial Revolution passed them by. Members of the group are gradually separated from the procession, kidnapped by the course of events and absorbed by the world. With its light, surrealistic elegance, A Brief Excursion is a parable about growing up, about the pursuit of a spectral goal that starts out in good company and ends with a growing sense of solitude.
