DIRECTOR ABOUT THE FILM


Child in Time used to be called God’s Punishment. More than a decade ago, the script was rejected by the then Ministry of Culture; maybe he was too religious. Because my sister, the producer Ida Weiss, liked it very much, she submitted it again to the tender of the Film Fund of the Republic of Slovenia, which approved it. Since we needed the permission of the church authorities (they did not approve the filming based on the God’s Punishment script), we adapted the script so that it was acceptable, and Child in Time was born.

When we started shooting the film in the beautiful church on Sladka gora, the main actress, a five-year-old girl, canceled her participation on the first day of filming, and I replaced her with the girl Anja in a panic. Anja, I called her Lena R., she capriciously resisted me in the main scene of the film, so I didn’t record the key scene. Thus, a brand new story was born again, and with it Child in time.
