In 1970 Karpo Godina shot footage for his unfinished Super 8mm documentary Imam jednu kuću (I Have One House), a haunting, August Sander–like portrait of farmers and folkloric customs in northwest Serbia. Some 40 years later, his former student Matjaž Ivanišin revisited these villagers to discover what became of them, creating a poetical meditation on history, landscape, and memory and an indelible compilation of fragments from Godina’s original work.
