ELDERLY PARASITE OR WHO IS MARKO BRECELJ
D: Janez Burger (Slovenia)
P:RTV Slovenija (2013)
How to label Marko Brecelj? The author of the documentary film Janez Burger saved himself by answering, “Marko Brecelj is poetry. The kind of poetry called life. And poetry can be communicated only in verses. ” Marko Brecelj is a common point in the egocentric world of pop culture, where it is difficult to reach a consensus on who was the pioneer of a different thinking. His “soft” terrorism is a terrorism of poetic engagement, which is like an initiation leading to radical changes. Changes in our heads. Options that it is possible. The system has changed, but society has not, so Marko Brecelj is still the same. With his soft, poetic-terrorist campaign he remains on the ramparts of humanity. Of common sense.
