Accidental Luxuriance of the Translucent Watery Rebus

A man, a woman, a chase, an escape. ‘Silence fiction’ is what Dalibor Barić calls his mix of collages, Rotoscoping, film scenes and comics. It’s like peering into a brain crammed full of film noir.

The footsteps, the shadows, the cryptic conversations. What's the distance between images in your mind? We take a dizzying trip through film history. Barić’s film constructs its own narrative from this immense treasure-trove of images, yet at the same time fails to get to grips with it. But this is intentional. This film teases its viewers with their need for plot and something to hold onto. The storyline is constantly in flux. The characters go their own way.

The film starts with ennui, inside the head of a woman who wants to escape the daily grind. “In my free time, I’m in freefall.” We are in her mind. This is her freefall. Her escape.
