CLICK TO PLAY > SIMULTANEOUS CONTRAST



The tripartite structure of the film is based on the one of classical music ‘gipsy’ compositions: Improvisation – Sorrow – Euphoria

Improvisation - the way they improvise to earn a living in the ‘real’ world

Sorrow - is where we get closer to them as individuals, at times aware of their own misery

Euphoria - the moment when they stop thinking and let go into an overwhelming intense state

Simultaneous contrast is an art phenomenon of deceiving perception
when a matter (bright yellow happiness) exposed to a
neutral background (the gray gypsy micro-cosmos of the flee market)
becomes in our eyes its very opposite (violet sadness).

The film is like a painting –
it occupies our attention, thoughts or feelings but still it is perceived from a distance.
