Raft of the Medusa (Splav meduze)

(Feature film, Slovenia, 1980, 102’, Color, OVFST)


Directed by: Karpo Acimovic Godina
With: Olga Kacijan, Vladica Milosavljevic, Boris Komnenic
Produced by: Viba film (Ljubljana)


Two bored school teachers in a small town are visited by a colourful group of would-be revolutionaries who decide to stage a street show which is meant to encourage political change.

“After Boštjan Hladnik and Matjaž Klopčič, it was Karpo Aćimović Godina who made a strong impact with his auteur approach to film, frequently stretching the possibilities of film language. Splav Meduze ('Raft of the Medusa', 1980) is based on quotations and iconography of the 1920s avant garde, while his Rdeči Boogie, ali Kaj ti je Deklica ('Red Boogie, or What’s Up Girl') is a fictionalized documentary about a music band touring the countryside playing ideologically controversial jazz music in the post-war communist system.”
