Will the time that comes erase empathy entirely?
In our present time, clicks, likes, comments... have become more important than the humans. Everything has to be recorded and published at the Instagram network, because likes must not lack.

Prozor kroz prostor sad, Stanislava Paunović i Emilija Vučićević, 3:28, Serbia 2020
“Window Through the Space Now” is a short, experimental, lyrical travelogue, an audio-visual associative guide through oneself from the room. By showing fragments of the footage recorded in the last more than two years, the perception of our own memory is being examined – as a chain of interwoven analogies, where each new combination gives a new meaning. This film is just one of many possible constructions of memories: what I am thinking now, what is not happening to me now, and where I would like to be.
