the firefly keeps falling and the snake keeps growing

Trailer, Video, 02’16”

The film is inspired by an ancient fable. It was filmed at Skopje’s Central Post Office, one of the most emblematic brutalist buildings in the Balkans. Built in 1974, the structure was ravaged after a fire outbreak and UNESCO now considers it as one of the 7 most endangered buildings in the world. Developed in a collaborative process that is integral to the artist’s practice, this film was conceived and created with the students of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje, North Macedonia.
