FILM AND OTHER MEDIA
Film modernism and multimediality of Radić's Timon
In 1973,Tomislav Radić thought up a very interesting multimedia project entitled Timon, staging the novel of the same name by Shakespeare at the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb and later adapting the contemporary version of the tragedy into film. He linked the two art works in many ways: from actors and motifs to direct surges of the play into film and vice versa, creating a very composite and at that time exceptionally modern multimedia project. The text looks at and analyses the project beginning with the literary source and the reconstruction of the play Timon of Athens and the film Timon, with a special emphasis on modernist elements, and finally analyzing the project as a whole. By doing so, the author makes an attempt to at least to some extent correct the mistake made by film professionals who mostly disregarded the project some 40 years ago.
