Jo Andres received support for That's It (TO JE TO), an experimental film based on the 1992 journals and drawings of Bosnian visual artist Izeta Gradevic. Gradevic, along with her husband and friends from the Obala Art Centar, was forced to take shelter in the basement theater of the Drama Academy to survive the siege of her hometown, Sarajevo. The film will focus on the woman's interior landscape-her hopes, fears, dreams-interwoven with daily acts of existence. Dreamlike, spectral and mysterious, Andres' work has a distinctive, nonlinear shape that appeals both to the conscious and the subconscious.
