For You In Me And Me In Them To Be One

Filmed deep in the mountains of south Serbia, For You in Me and Me in Them to Be One is at the same time a cinematic exploration of the pictorial strategies inherent to Pavle A. Florensky's theory of the Icon and a love letter to the Sopocani Monastery's genius loci.

The monastery was Beban's artist retreat throughout the 80s.Reminiscent of Sergey Paraganov's film 'The Colour of Pomegranates', Beban's real-time performance in her beloved landscape is heavy with a promise of privileged moments accessible only if one can open up to the possibility of their mystery.
