Are unspoken memories what shapes us into who we really are? Perseverance is a mosaic narrative on events that have left a lasting mark on the lives of the protagonists. Each story is a reflection of thoughts, goals, fears and desires of its protagonist, seeking to articulate them through internal monologues, laconic self-questioning, through memories and confessions. A collage of various intimate stories aims to speak of the phenomenon of man. This is why characters in the film don't share the same space or time, do not know each other and never will.

Brane Grubar je upodobil popotnika na obali počitniškega mesta, kjer se je poletje že zdavnaj poslovilo. Tudi sam se je prišel poslovit od pepela žare, ki jo skriva v naročju. Njegov pogled drsi po gladini morja in takrat ga, kot bi se navzel njegovega plimovanja, preplavijo čustva. Igralec je vztrajal v njihovem zanosu in njegov lik prepustil nekontroliranim gestam, ki so pepel ljubljene osebe namesto k morju, mehanično, samodejno nosile v njegova usta. S ponotranjeno igro Braneta Grubarja se je skoraj banalni pogreb spremeni v veličastno izpoved ljubezni.

Ivanka Mežan jezaigrala lik ženske, ki je priča zadnjim vzdihljajem svojega ljubega moža. Sredi temačnega hodnika bolnišnice se odvija tiho, nemo poslavljanje, kjer obupano išče človeško prisotnost, a je nihče ne vidi ne sliši. Igralki je bila situacija izziv, da je z minimalno igro vsak trenutek vedno globlje odstrla pogled v srce in dušo svojega lika in s tem narekovala trajanje kadra in ritem celotne sekvence.

Vesna Award
best experimental film
2017

Eno življenje v tisoč življenjih, ena zgodba v tisoč zgodbah. Svež in izviren impresionistični kolaž in avtor, ki je naredil izstopajoč film tudi brez klasične naracije. Vesna za najbolj izvirni avtorski prispevek.
