    PORTOROŽ: Miha Vipotnik’s long animated documentary Wracked Piano / Pošvedrani klavir was selected for the competition of the 25th Festival of Slovenian Film Portorož (25-30 October 2022).

    Wracked Piano is a tale of cinema and music about an old Bösendorfer225 grand piano Subcontra F, that stands abandoned in a studio of Radio Slovenia. The film’s stories about the piano are based on true facts and written records, complemented by quotes and references to two Slovenian literary works. But the narrative weaving all these together is a product of the filmmakers’ imagination and creative zeal.

    “Inspired by true historical facts and people, the tale combines various levels of the cinematic and animated film language. In both, I used an approach that is a blend of fiction and essay,” says director Miha Vipotnik in a statement.

    Wracked Piano was produced by Igor Pediček through Casablanca in coproduction with RTV Slovenija. The project is supported by the Slovenian Film Centre.

    Miha Vipotnik (1954) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. He is a director and screenwriter, who frequently collaborates with the Slovenian national television RTV Slovenija.
