It is a well known fact that films also have their own poets, but wider audience is not familiarized with one of the most lucid and the most significant poets of films on the territory of former Yugoslavia and that is Mihovil Pansini. The sole reason for his unfamiliarity is the fact that he exclusively worked on amateur films.
The fate of amateur film in our country was never (and probably won't be in the future either) publically recognized with enough understanding, even though during the last 50 years it was the only example of authentic avant-garde in the field of film expression. Through Pansini's thoughts and film clips, this documentary is attempting to reconstruct, to some extent, this extraordinary author's amateur film making development.
