COLORS AND RHYTHMS OF THE UNREST (2022)
Collegium Artisticum was founded three years before the Second World War, made by intellectuals who returned to Sarajevo from the European cultural capitals of that time, willing to show and share their acquired knowledge and skills, and organized various cultural events from 1939 to 1941.
In a work that had progressive elements of all the great cultural movements in Europe of the first half of the 20th century, the local tradition was not neglected either, with a clearly woven message of the importance of togetherness.

THE END OF THE VALLEY OF TEARS (2022)
The residents of the village of Tichilesti, which is located in eastern Romania, live far away from civilization, in the quiet among dogs and cats that roam the streets. Their everyday life follows the rhythm of nature, which is determined by the changing seasons.
But this calmness means death because Tichilesti was where lepers were sent years ago.
Under communism, the village was wiped off the map by order of the authorities, and its inhabitants were strictly forbidden to leave the area.
Today, only a few survive. The village is infamous as a leper colony, not visited even the family members of its lonely inhabitants.
