I wish I could properly explain the images this still brings in mind. I can see it clearly in my head, but it seems to elude words. It’s like trying to read the future – or in this case, the past – and the only way I can describe it is this:
I see a city that is not a popular tourist destination, probably somewhere in the Balkans, surrounded by mountains that grow barren forests. A city that looks pretty ordinary, has a slow pace and provides an uneventful life. Its people are far more interesting, original; they are outgoing and they talk loudly and they share their stories in large groups of friends. They all get together and along with their city, they come alive in the night. I can see old buildings that house cool bars and underground clubs in the most unimaginable locations, only accessible to knowledgeable locals and their guests. Guests who find it hard to believe this city is so diverse, exciting and full of surprises, scattered around its urban landscape.
For the record, the still is from the trailer of IFC FIlms's Angels of Sex.
