Oroslan, Matjaž Ivanišin, Slovenia / Czech Republic 2019, 72 min., Slovenian with English subtitles

Set in a remote Hungarian village and based on a Zdravko Duša short story, Matjaž Ivanišin’s Oroslan follows the lives of a Slovenian minority community as they grapple with grief and mortality following the death of an elderly villager. Ivanišin fabricates reality, juxtaposing the fictional and the observational with the tradition of oral storytelling to explore how Oroslan’s passing triggers rumination and introspection within the community. Often shot from behind or sharply from the side, Oroslan’s friends and acquaintances recount personal stories, slowly revealing their relationships with him and recreating his image through tales of their own fears and desires.

This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Matjaž Ivanišin.
