:STARS OF GAOMEIGU
Serbia/China, 2017, 23 min
At the Gaomeigu Observatory in China, the Naxi people scan the sky, convinced they are the descendants of immortal beings living there, abandoned on earth to watch them. Between astronomy and legends, Marko Grba Singh seems to compose a mysterious and polysemous tableau. Beyond the narrative fertility of this device, through the careful presence of the filmmaker throughout the film, we see the emergence of his perspective of a country that probably constantly eludes him and on which he can project only his own images, with humour and sensual audacity.
