Guidance Through The Black Hole (2017)
UK/Bosnia, Documentary, 74 min.
Sule is a hard-living, chain smoking poet- one of the few remaining bohemians left in London’s Portobello district. Drinking and gambling with his Eastern European friends has left him estranged from his family and, even though he is surrounded by people, he feels utterly alone. His one consolation is his dream of one day returning to his beloved place of birth. Confronted by his own mortality following the death of his best friend, Sule is thrown into crisis, the thought of returning home now reduced to an unimaginable reality. Presented with a lifeline by the Bosnian Embassy who invite him to exhibit a series of paintings entitled Guidance through the Black Hole, Sule must navigate the difficult road home. Torn between his vices and the completion of his work can Sule escape his dark past and escape the black holes of his own creation?
