The trailer of 17th UNDERDOX

The theme of “volatility” is driving us this year. Nothing lasts. Peace. Health. Elements. Films. Jean-Luc Godard has passed on. And even the last excursion of UNDERDOX is history. In the summer of 2021, we went to Palić, Serbia, to present a short film program at the local festival. We left the EU and got to know a secluded, mysterious world near the Hungarian border. The trailer reminds us of our trip. It shows a shot of the dead lake of Palić, which is completely tilted. That doesn’t stop us from reveling in idyll: Slowly, the barge draws a circle over the greenish-yellow water, folk tunes wistfully reminiscent of old, better times. Suddenly, the sound of a film projector mingles. – This was just a new prank by JLG. Marguerite Duras sits across from him, praising his film. The latter smirks: he can only ever say bad things, he admires her praise. Then they say: Shall we begin? Yes, we begin.
