Editor: Paula Oneț
Production Coordinator: Biljana Dolevska
At a certain age, is hard enough to remember what you did yesterday. At 90 it really doesn’t matter.You keep on going with either reluctance, or abandon. What seems important, are the little things at hand, a flower, a cat, a crystal glass, a tree, and scattered glimpses into the remembered past that always tend to help. A bitter-sweet look into the freshness of the fleeing moments embodied in our present perfect continuous life. No matter the age.

Two nomad coopers, with a carriage for a house and a horse for a friend, fare from one village another, merrily striving to make ends meet. No cumbersome belongings, not even a watch, but they still have the time. Misplaced and disregarded, with skills hardly needed anymore, they keep on looking for means and meanings, or the lack of them. In this marginal existence, that would make Zola exalt, there are touching reminiscences of a long forgotten time. What time is it, what time?
