Curator: Ester Ivakič
Production: SCCA-Ljubljana, 2022
Duration: 60′
Premiere: SCCA Project Room (30 September 2022)

Back2Back is a series of events, where we invite local and international authors to present their own production and establish a dialogue with works of their choice from the DIVA Station archive.

Film director and visual artist Ester Ivakič prepared a programme of various entertaining and mystical films, which she based on her short experimental film Sometimes I wish I were an angel sometimes. In the selected works, themes such as nature, love, paranormal, friendship, dreams, and other dimensions stand out. While searching through the DIVA Station archive, the author highlighted works that inspire her with their innovative form, exposure of fluidity, effects of the multidimensional, iridescent, and magical.
