Disappearing Landscape






TITLE
DISAPPEARING LANDSCAPE
by Vladimir Todorovic
Singapore, Serbia, Spain
2013


SYNOPSIS
Three stories set across Serbia, Singapore and Spain follow immigrants and their uneasy relationships with foreign landscapes. In Serbia, a man comes back to his hometown after years living abroad. He feels estranged while visiting places he once knew well, and is confused about the disappearance of the intimate connection he had with once familiar landscapes. In Singapore, an expatriate couple living a monotonous life face upheaval after an encounter with cosplayers in their neighborhood. This is followed by a trip to a coral reef, which has managed to survive in an industrial area. In the final segment, a couple from Latin America arrives in Spain to search for a better life. They are ready to explore the new landscape, but uneasiness and fear of the unknown haunt them.

QUOTES
“Vladimir Todorovic’s sophomore feature (...) is a precise yet invitingly open three-part omnibus film, its use of locations as characters in their own right evoking such films as Jia’s The World (2004) and Julia Loktev’s The Loneliest Planet (2011).”
