Peter McDougall & John McKenzie - The Elephants' Graveyard (1976, 48mins)

Bunny has told his wife he is working as a postman, but in fact is wandering the hills all day, wondering why he doesn't want to work. He meets Jody, an older man who has told his wife he's working in a factory, but is in fact doing the same thing. The two men spend a day of friendship together, but what does the future offer them? And tonight is supposed to be pay night...

Boris Mitic - Pretty Dyana (2002, 45 mins)

An intimate look at Gypsy refugees in a Belgrade suburb who make a living by transforming Citroen´s classic 2CV and Dyana cars into Mad Max-like recycling vehicles, which they use to collect card-board, bottles and scrap metal. These modern horses are much more efficent than the cart-pushing competition, but even more important, they also mean freedom, hope and style for their crafty owners.
