The online availability of two of the Institute's Bosnian-made pictures has shifted dramatically in the past few weeks.
Epizoda ? can now be watched for free on Vimeo. This absurdist detective show pilot was written and directed by Graeme Cole at Béla Tarr's film.factory, and was previously available for VoD on Tao Films, an art film and 'slow cinema' platform, which is currently enjoying a creative pause.
Murmurs is available online for the first time, to rent or buy on Vimeo On Demand. The ASMR-tinged experimental feature film was also written and directed by Mr Cole at film.factory, and just like Epizoda ?, features Elma Selman in a leading role. The male lead is the Institute's regular player, Stewart Lockwood.

But for these lonely weirdos, building trust might take more than endless days of cooking and fucking.
