For Tara

Breda Beban and Hrvoje Horvatic

1991, 04:50 minutes, colour/B&W


The video was shot and edited while the town of Zagreb was bombarded during the civil war in ex Yugoslavia.

Instead of pointing the camera towards war reality, the authors focused on a sequence of rather abstract images - a tunnel, trees, hair in water, silhouettes of people without heads, city full of terribly monotonous buildings - then as a delivering apothesis, a beautiful baby.

The whole video resembles a poem set to visual music and reveals an almost unresistable feeling of sadness.
