History of Love by Sonja Prosenc
History of Love explores the discomfort of the coming of age, especially during emotionally intense events of facing death and experiencing loss, and is also subtly dealing with a theme of the currently prevalent nihilism, violence, and emotional detachment. It follows the emotional and psychological states of the main character and can be seen as meanderings of memories and thoughts, with shots or sequences echoing variations and details.

Stories From the Chesnut Woods by Gregor Bozic
Somewhere in a far-off region, in a forested valley between two countries, lived two old people, husband and wife. The old woman fell sick and died, and the old man, a stingy coffin maker, found himself all alone in the world. Pondering the life he had lived, he meets Marta, a local chestnut seller, who desperately wants to leave the valley. A chance encounter gives rise to a dreamy parable on loneliness and the power of imagination.

Let Him be a Basketball Player by Boris Petkovic
Ranta was so tall he could put neckties on giraffes and so thin he was translucent. He ate everything he saw, including the plate it was served on, and he was so lazy that his bed had to come to him in the evening on its own, otherwise he’d fall asleep standing… Ranta never suspected that basketball would change his life completely: that a talented basketball player would arise from an indolent klutz. Ranta’s “basketball path” is full of difficulties, surprises, first love, joy, rises and falls, happiness and disappointment, victory and defeat. The story depicts this youthful playfulness with humour, favorable disposition and understanding for the problems and mistakes that teenagers make as they are growing up.
