Minor Apocalypse is, strictly speaking, not a documentary film. The film based on a true story: the death of a community. Činje is (or was) a tiny village in the valley of Nediža, doomed to neglect and ruin by the economic logic of modern life, like so many other highland or out-of-the-way places. In this case, the village was deserted after the earthquake of 1976, when the last inhabitants were given no other option but to move to other communities in the valley, although the damage to their village was not considerable.

Z izvirnim estetskim pristopom tako v sliki kot zvoku dokumentarni film preseže meje žanra, pridobi poetične razsežnosti in pove mnogo več, kot da zgolj dokumentarno govori o tem, kako je umrla neka vas. Film Mala apokalipsa Alvara Petriciga je v vseh pogledih nekaj posebnega. Zato nagrada za posebne dosežke.
