This is the Day (2011)

Original title: See on see päev

Documentary Duration 64:50

“THIS IS THE DAY” captures the flow and simple beauty of daily life in a monastery standing on a hill above the Serbian village of Velika Hoca in Kosovo. The director asks the viewer to set aside any expectations of hearing a “story” and instead to observe quietly as in life. The serenity of the film provides a poetic space in which the imagination may drift freely, meditating and reflecting. The camera is still, landscapes unfold, seasons change and the words give way to silence.

Director: Kersti Uibo
