What interests me at the moment is a kind of ghost-like, spectral temporality, with the rhythm and pace of dreams. A mythical management of time. I’m interested in an image that looks back and asks : What is real? To which the viewer can reply : I am here and I am dreaming.

Iva Radivojević was born in Belgrade and spent her early years in Yugoslavia and Cyprus. She is an artist and filmmaker who currently divides her time between subarctic Alaska, Brooklyn and Lesbos. Her work presents itself as a collection of fragments (observations, contemplations, poetry, images, sounds, melodies, languages) which collage together to connect into a ruminating whole. The work circles around displacement and belonging, seeking to connect to the metaphysical or the magical. Iva's films have screened at New York FF, New Directors/New Films, IFF Rotterdam, CPH:DOX, SXSW, DocLisboa, Museum of Modern Art (NYC) and others. She is the recipient of the Sundance Art of Non-Fiction Fellowship, Guggenheim Fellowship, Princess Grace Special Project Award and Film Fellowship, and Jerome Foundation Fellowship. Her latest film ALEPH (2021) was selected at Sarajevo FF.
