PAPPENSTORY A Story About Slovenian Amateur Theater SAG Trieste

The institution of the Slovene theatre in Trieste was a fundamental cultural space of the Slovene minority in Italy, and represented a platform for cultural development and critical perception of social reality. When in the 70s, a group of young artists was dissatisfied by the theatre’s increasing willingness to subordinate itself to current political authorities, they decided to establish the Slovene amateur theatre SAG. The SAG involved a host of enthusiastic young thinkers and creators, while Sergej Verč, Boris Kobal, Bogomila Kravos and Ivan Verč represented its soul.

And why Bela film?

Weiss means white in German, and it symbolizes, among other things, perfection and positivity, and it most often appears as a symbol of eternity and absoluteness. It is nothing from which everything can develop. Bela krajina is also a small and remote region in the south-east of Slovenia, where Ida and Maja Weiss grew up. It is one of the most beautiful and untouched corners of Slovenia, famous for the hospitality of the locals.
