From the streets of Belgrade to the mountains at the borders, Marko Grba Singh follows the real-life routes and the recollective threads of his characters.


Serbian independent filmmaker and festival curator Marko Grba Singh crafts films that skirt poetically around the edge of historical events - such as, in his Locarno-premiering Rampart, the 1999 NATO bombing of Serbia - addressing their ideas through more oblique, idiosyncratic, personal means and focusing on outsiders and social misfits to craft a vision of the world and its social politics. In this program, we celebrate Grba Singh’s imaginative approach to outlining the historical and day-to-day footsteps of individuals, be it a homeless man roaming the streets of Belgrade (At Least We’ve Met, a couple of Somalian refugees (Abdul & Hamza, 2015) or even by crossing beyond the human boundary by giving a voice to a dog (Tesaurus, 2020). Pick-up the thread and walk with us.
