DIRECTOR’S BIO
Dalibor Barić is a Croatian experimental filmmaker whose works often explores traditional genres like science fiction and horror. Using found objects as his source material, Barić uses collage techniques in order to produce sophisticated psychedelic narratives that often blur the lines between our outer and inner realities. Barić’s work also calls into question issues surrounding artistic practices in the digital age including ideas about authenticity, simulation/replication and appropriation.
