    DVD version 7’02”, colour, sound
    camera: Boris Vidović
    restoration and technical processing: Croatian Film Clubs' Association (film transfered from 8 mm film)

    On Easter 1985, at Otokar Keršovani Square, the author drew a black figure on the ground consisting of two rhomboidal forms and laid in it. The unstable film shot, originally taken in S8 format, is the result of the cameraman circling (Boris Vidović) around the centre of action. Namely, he was holding the camera with one hand, and driving the bike with the other. In 2003, when the original material was transferred to 16mm tape, the sound of mountain wind was added.
