Synopsis

In this short documentary a multinational crew from Croatia and France tries to show the viewer why are there so many shoes hanging around the capital city of Slovenia.

Director's statement

In an effort to explore a theme which would be different from others an yet interesting enough, we started exploring the city of Ljubljana. What we had noticed were dozens of shoes hanging on wires across the city, so we decided to dig into that topic. The result is a film which tells many stories told by many different people. Each story for me personally represents who those people they really are and actually reveals more about them then about the origin of the hanging shoes.

Director's short bio

I've been making films since the second grade of primary school. At the moment, I am attending the bilingual class at X. gimnazija "Ivan Supek" high school in Zagreb in Croatian and English. With my films I have taken part in many of Croatia's festivals, like Revija hrvatskog filmskog stvaralaštva, Filmska revija mladeži u Karlovcu, Dubrovnik film festival, Revija amaterskog filma (RAF), Lidrano, Revija filmskog i videostvaralaštva djece i Camera Zizanio festival (in Greece), Bangladesh film festival (Bangladesh), Balkan Food Film Festival (Albania), Hollywood Weekly’s Short Film Festival (USA) etc. In 2013 on Dubrovnik film festival and Umag film festival I got "Public's choice" award and the award for "Best fiction film" for the film "Chained Colours" (Originally titled: "Teške boje"). I am a member of “Blank_filmski inkubator” in which I hold workshops for teenagers and make my own films. Except in “Blank_filmski inkubator”, I often travel outside of Zagreb to hold workshops, i.e. for "Gerger film" in Požega, “Summer film school in Kraljevica” etc. For the company “33pt Videos” I make TV and radio commercials and music videos. I was a jury member in Istanbul in 2014 at the Youth’s film festival. My work in the past included directing, camera work, light operating, editing, Color Correcting and grading, and finally, sound recording and design. Aa summer jobs I did a lot of work on Croatian National Television doing TV reports for three film festivals in Croatia. After finishing high school I entered the technical university in Rijeka where I am studying computer science.
