This feature documentary is a portrait of Ivan Bolle, an unknown Slovenian filmmaker who made films in the 1930s, documenting various events in and around Ljubljana. His film opus includes four medium-length fiction films set in the mountains. Ivan Bolle was the first Slovenian filmmaker to screen films with sound, playing music from his rich collection of classical records or previously recorded sound effects on a gramophone player – 78 rpm. He also experimented with film coloring, and was a versatile figure in the world of cinema, serving as a screenwriter, director, camera operator, and actor.

Director's statement

It was 13 years ago that I discovered Bolle’s precious legacy in the Antika Carniola antique shop. I was completely in awe of this unknown filmmaker who made films in the 1930s and screened them together with sound. That was still deep in the silent era.
