Director:  Maja Kirovska

Title in English:  Where Is The Exit? Probably Sisyphus Knows
Original title: Where Is The Exit? Probably Sisyphus Knows

2011/  Macedonia/ DV/ 3’/ Experimental/ Colour

Script:  Maja Kirovska; Photography: Maja Kirovska; Editing: Maja Kirovska; Music: Maja Kirovska; Sound: Maja Kirovska; Producer: Maja Kirovska

It is a metaphor for us, modern Sisyphuses, preoccupied with our everyday repeatable actions, that by repeating, almost get unconscious character. It represents the “blessing” of unawareness and the unbearable heaviness of the moment of getting conscious of our position in the global movement of the things. The video shows a big number of ants that repeatedly are trying to climb up to the top, and at every attempt they slide to the bottom, not changing the starting position.
