Slovenian 8mm Experiments: Karpo Godina And Davorin Marc

Northwest Film Forum says
Karpo Godina launched his career in the mid-sixties with a succession of 8mm experimental shorts, predominantly designed to question everything he was being taught at the state film academy. In retrospect, it seems as if Godina had to go through this romantic, frantic phase in order to arrive at what he became famous for: extracting as much (political) action and dynamics as possible from meticulously framed, perfectly still images. Emerging a decade after Godina, the post-punk Davorin Marc remains a subject for further research. Notoriously reclusive and with over 150 super-8mm and 16mm films under his belt, he modestly describes his work as “small films.”
