“Observer” (Osservatore) (00:02:04) by Milana Karaeva, North Ossetia-Alania, Italy, 2023

“Observer” is a manifestation of the crude and ruthless view of time on a person through the hour hand. 

Director Bio

I started my career with photography, then became interested in video. Now I am developing my skills in directing short form. I studied at the Moscow Film School, at the faculty of Filmmaking. Then I decided to continue my studies, but with a focus on Italian cinema. So, I entered the University of Turin and started studying Italian cinema.  Recently, I have started to be interested in the Video art format. I like that there are no restrictions in this art form. I plan to develop further in directing short films and video art.

Pebbles Underground is focused on showcasing and promoting experimental, avant-garde, underground, and no-to-low budget projects by artist-humans from all over the world. Absurd, uncanny, witty, humorous, slow-video – all are welcomed, and loved. Pebbles Underground is an independent project not funded by any government or corporation, and we intend to keep it that way. Main source of funding is personal donations from humans organizing the project, who are artists themselves, and the main drive of the project is formed by the energy and involvement of the organizers, and the public.
