To someone who is new to ADRIART and Media Arts and Practices Programme, the term Progress Track might not mean much. To students (and mentors!) of the Programme however it is the backbone of their studies, a regular review of their work; on smaller projects, advancing their knowledge, skills and conception on and for their master project. This overall progress is mentor and peer reviewed through regular meetings, as often as possible with -remote or f2f- meetings with a group at another institution.

We came to Vis by ferry in a two hours boat ride from Split. We immediately searched for the Hotel Bisevo that is the only hotel in Komiza. The hotel was neat and clean but it is a living monument of past socialistic times... The beach under the hotel and the pizzeria next to it confirmed the first impression.

The idea for the film Family reunion was just to make a short video test for a feature film. But little by little it became a work in itself. Death of the main character is a metaphor for getting out of the family Pandora's Box. I didn't think of physical death much, but I used it to show how it can happen that in such a critical moment members of a family can't go over own selfish pain, anger and pity.
