The Works and Career of Želimir Žilnik
Želimir Žilnik (b. 1942) is one of the most distinguished and versatile Eastern European filmmakers. His works include fiction, documentary and hybrid films, including the celebrated Early Works (1969), as well as television productions, undertaken in numerous countries, such as his homeland Yugoslavia, Germany and Austria. Working on a tight budget, Žilnik made a virtue of his constraints, always showing artistic and intellectual independence. With a career that began in the 1960s and continuing to this day at a lively pace of activity that spans both the film and the art world, a polyvalent history of European cinema can be traced through his work.
The special issue of Studies in European Cinema (SEEC) calls for contributions (not exceeding 6000 words), examining different facets of Žilnik’s work and career.
