Primer: Vain / The Vain Case (2005)

14min / študijski dokumentarni film, kratki film

Matej Smolnik je bil slikar, pisec in predvsem glasbenik. Tragična in nenavadna smrt, ki ga je doletela pri rosnih dvaindvajsetih, je sprožila val ugibanj in polemik. Zakaj je zažgal skoraj vsa svoja likovna dela? Je bil res genij ali zgolj samotarski čudak? So glasbeni posnetki, najdeni v njegovi kleti, res njegovi? Zakaj o njegovem ustvarjanju nihče ne ve praktično ničesar? Kaj je bil v resnici vzrok njegove na videz skoraj paranormalne smrti? In končno, kaj v celotni zgodbi je resnica in kaj zgolj mit? Matej Smolnik was a painter, a writer and especially a musician. The tragic and unusual death that befell him at the young age of 22, created a number of mysteries and controversies. Why did he burn almost all of his fine art? Was he really a genius or just a solitary eccentric? Are the musical recordings discovered in his basement really his own? Why is there hardly anything known about his creation? What was the true cause of his seemingly almost paranormal death? And last but not least, what is the truth and what is myth in this story?
