Sounds of Us

5:23 min | 2011

As part of the Museum of Broken Relationships, the short film Sounds of Us was inspired by one of the objects donated to the Museum of Broken Relationships when it came to Tristen Bates Theatre in London, UK. It was used to immerse the museum attendees in the world of one woman’s story of heartbreak.

As taken from the Museum of Broken Relationships website, “the Museum of Broken Relationships grew from a traveling exhibition revolving around the concept of failed relationships and their ruins. Unlike ‘destructive’ self-help instructions for recovery from failed loves, the Museum offers a chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creation: by contributing to the Museum’s collection.

Conceptualized in Croatia by Olinka Vištica and Dražen Grubiši, the Museum has since toured internationally, amassing an amazing collection. Although often colored by personal experience, local culture and history, the exhibits presented here form universal patterns offering us to discover them and feel the comfort they can bring.”

The film is now part of the permanent exhibition in Zagreb, Croatia.
