Breda Beban
9 mins Colour Beta SP


Reaffirming Carl Theodor Dreyer's idea that 'the human face is the most beautiful landscape', Geography focuses on a face of a non-actor as a blank landscape that can during filming suddenly shift into itself or into something else.

Shot in the summer of 1998, the film is charged with the anticipation of tragic events that were to follow the death of Yugoslavia. The geography of the title has much to do with the pensive fluctuations of lines on the landscape of the face as it has with the bloody cartography of the coming civil war in Former Yugoslavia.
