reż. Mladen Kovacevic/Serbia, Finland/2013/51 min.

The film is shown in the block [1] How to Destroy the Time Machines and Unplagged.

“Unplugged” is an existential tale about blowing into leaves, rattling between the most primitive of instruments and the most universal escapism of music.

Meet Josip, amateur-inventor set out to decode the artistry of leaf-playing, and the last leaf-players – Vera, ex private detective, and Pera, the know-it-all peasant – in the autumns of their lives, still going for the verdant leaves. Music has rarely been so offbeat.
