Women Minor Speculations is shot on 35mm, 16mm, digital Bolex, Digital 8, mobile phones and still cameras with each medium carrying with it its own texture, its own discourse and levels of grain and tactility. In my attempt to rewrite a historical narrative I manipulate with the levels of authority of an image, trying to inscribe into each frame or sequence the possibility of another one, thinking about forms of representing the minor subject in history, in images and in collective memory in a particular geopolitical location and within a particular time frame. The film is accompanied by an original electronic soundtrack by the cinematographer Ivan Slipčević sourced through field recordings and processed, and fragments of a speculative fiction collated from the archaeological record, from notations of everyday life in the locations we filmed in or the archaeological digs we took part in and poetic fragments.
