A portrait of one day in Sena’s life, a 70-year-old woman who lives in a cinema’s projection booth in Sarajevo. The projection room’s confined space reveals all the intimacy and lifetime memories. This slow and silent portrait of Sena’s daily life contrasts with the sound of the projectors and the soundtracks of the movies, as a kind of counterpoint to Sena’s recollection of her past, creating a parallel story that reveals a history of film and a history of a country. Some scenes from the movies contain female characters, pinpointing precise moments which Sena herself has lived – her childhood during the Nazi occupation in World War II and the conflict between Ustashe, Chetniks and Yugoslav Communists; the Kragujevac massacre; the loss of her young mother; Tito’s arrival to power; the rebirth of Yugoslavia; the struggles of post-May ‘68; the discovery of love; the loss of her husband; the siege of Sarajevo and the death of her children.
