Zdravi ljudi za razonodu

"Zdravi ljudi za razonodu"("Healthy People For Fun" or "The Litany of the Healthy People") by Karpo Godina, Yugoslavia 1971, portrays the peoples living in the multicultural Yugoslavian province Vojvodina (today part of Serbia).
"Nations and ethnic groups in the province of Vojvodina live in harmonious coexistence. However, members of the same ethnic groups paint facades of their houses the same color -- Croats red, Hungarians green, and Slovaks blue... The film delighted audiences at the premiere and won an award at the Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival, but it was soon banned because of alleged subversive elements." (Motovun Film Festival).
I saw this amazing film in the cinema last night, in a programme compiled by Aleksandra Domanovic, in the context of her fantastic exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel. I featured her own work previously on this blog here.

UFOs over Switzerland

Some pictures from the website of the Swiss UFO believers of the FIGU society, centered around Billy Eduard Albert Meier (BEAM), who claims to be in contact with "Plejaren" extraterrestrians since 1942 and can type really fast with his only hand, mostly to write down the telepathic messages he receives.
You can order the above cassette of UFO sounds on their website or listen here.
And watch super 8 recordings here.

The most Dispokino related video on the DVD is probably this one by Sabrina Ratté (I hope you all know her amazing blog too):
