Apartment 2a

by Gaja Möderndorfer

Stanovanje 2a, 2023, fiction, digital DCP, 1,85:1, c, 19 min


In an apartment building, residents call the police and the SPCA to stop a dog's incessant barking. What is going on behind the locked door of the flat belonging to the elderly everyman? The short Apartment 2a depicts generations not divided by a gap, but united in their disregard for the person next door. The elders have been made indifferent by the bitterness of age, the young by the self-absorption of being terminally online.
