A Man, a Woman and a Boy. Three people in a timeless landscape. They don’t know each other, their cultural background is undefined. They try to survive, each on his/her own. Slowly they start to get in some contact which is utterly mistrusting and occasionally hostile, but through various different situations it gradually starts to develop into relationships. We watch each of them in different basic states; the state of fear, happiness, indifference, fury, helplessness, hatred, feeling of being lost and love, in the end.
In this way we get to know them and our knowledge about them becomes deeper.
The situations in which they appear and meet derive almost exclusively from my subconsciousness, therefore they are probably archetypal in a sense. But the film is actually about the process of formation of the basic human social and intimate cell.
Ur-man, ur-woman and ur-boy slowly get rid of the fear, hostility, insecurity and join in an ur-community we call family.
An ur-film about and ur-family.

Where have you heard about Scripteast?
I think I got a notice from slovenian Media office. I am not sure.
What made you interested in this program?
What do you expect from this year edition of Scripteast?
To be able to continue my work in good atmosphere and to meet at least one interesting person.
Do you have previous experience as tutor and advisor at similar workshops?
What is your personal defintion of a good scrtipt and what – the most- makes it succesful?
I don’t have any definition of a good script. If the script is honest, it can be followed by succesfull film.
“ScripTeast is the programme all the advisors
wish they could have attended at the start of their
careers. It would have saved all that stumbling
around in the dark looking for the key that
stimulates the imagination so much more
