Inventory Zelimir Zilinik movie
Inventory (1975)
Directed by Zelimir Zilnik
A group of immigrants living in a German flat walk one by one down the flat’s staircase, stopping briefly to tell the camera their stories. Zilnik’s nine-minute film (which will screen on 35mm with the Yugoslavian artist in person to discuss it as well as three of his other works) presents a wide variety of experiences in a new land. The man with the wife who cannot find a job even after five years in Germany and the unemployed woman with five children to feed live in the same building with people who feel satisfied and happy to go to work each day. Then, at film’s end, a pensioner who has lived in the flat for 40 years peacefully concludes that he is satisfied with them all. Aaron Cutler (Oct 29 at Anthology, part of The Permanent Dissident: Zelimir Zilinik)
