The Discreet Charm of Isolation

In the times of a pandemic, we found comfort in words and metaphors. Check out what our film directors, editors, scriptwriters and other creative collaborators did with their phones and cameras when the world paused. A little cup of poetry written by fabulous Croatian female poets, recited by famous Croatian actress Jelena Miholjević, selected by publisher Branko Čegec and cooked by our arts-at-heart producer Tamara Babun. 

This kitchen-made production became our little voice, when we were not able to work, therefore saying nothing can truly take away the art from the artist.
