Alena's Journey
(Alena utazása)

short, video, 15 minutes


Alena, an inhibited, thirty-year old accountant from Sarajevo has a plane to catch in the afternoon to Zurich. Her boss and strict father do everything they can to prevent her from attending a four-month business course.
Meanness at the workplace and the cruel secrets of the Balkan war come to the surface while in the meantime Alena bravely struggles to achieve her goal.
