4 Years in 10 Minutes

4 godine u 10 minuta

  • Mladen Kovačević


On mysterious cassettes forgotten or left behind for 17 years, a disturbing filmic material is revealed. Accompanied by the extracts of a diary written by the protagonist standing behind the camera, the images translate into a singular and transformative intimate experience. After Unplugged (VdR, 2013), which described the art of music played with tree leaves, and Wall of the Death, and All That (VdR, 2016), which drew the portrait of a group of fairground people and their relationship with the “wall of death” (on which one rides horizontally on a motorbike), with 4 Years in 10 Minutes, Mladen  Kovačević constructs a film using sequences retracing a Serbian expedition to Mount Everest. Images from another time, shot in the almost alien, mystical landscapes reveal enigmatic characters, perilous circumstances and the suspense of confrontation to the real limits of human capabilities. An adventure film, as rigorous as it is melancholic, based on skilful editing.
