Imam Pesmu Da Vam Pevam (I Have A Song To Sing You), dir. Zoe Aiano, 2017
A textural, ethnographic portrait of Serbian/Vlach woman, Ivanka, who communicated with the dead through ritualistic trance. Filmed on location in Topolnica, Eastern Serbia, Aiano’s camera drifts between archive footage gifted to her by a local ethnographer and the present, meandering into the corners of Topolnica’s rurality and Ivanka’s home as into her visions to capture a palpable essence of Ivanka’s possessions.
