In southern Carinthia, about ninety percent of all inhabitants spoke Slovene before 1910 - today, in Keutschach/Hodiše, the filmmaker's hometown, about five percent still speak the language of the Carinthian Slovenes. But what remains when language disappears? When belonging and history are violently translated and the perspectives of the voiceless are lost in translation?



Andrina Mračnikar tells of the disappearance of a mother tongue, seeks possibilities for talking about memories for which there are hardly any words left and focuses on the voids that remain - plaques, houses, people. The more she unfolds the story of her hometown and thus also that of her own family, the clearer it becomes that the disappearance is the result of privation - and that those who took were never willing to give back.

Na južnem Koroškem je pred letom 1910 devetdeset procentov vseh prebivalcev govorilo slovensko. Danes v Hodišah/Keutschach-u, v domačem kraju režiserke filma Izginjanje, jezik Koroških Slovencev govori le še dobrih pet procentov krajanov. Kaj ostane za govorom, ki izgine? Ko sta pripadnost in zgodovina na silo prevedeni v jezik nekoga drugega in so perspektive negovorečih izgubljene v prevodu?


Andrina Mračnikar pripoveduje o izginotju maternega jezika in pri tem išče načine, kako ubesediti spomine, za katere besede praktično več ne obstajajo, pri tem pa pozornost usmerja v prazna mesta, ki ostajajo - krajevne table, hiše, ljudje. Bolj kot se razpredajo niti zgodbe o njenem domačem kraju in s tem zgodba njene lastne družine, bolj očitno postaja, da izginotje temelji na odvzemu in da tisti, ki jemljejo, nikoli niso nameravali ničesar vrniti.V letu, ko mineva petdeset let od napada na krajevne table, se ne postavlja zgolj vprašanje, o čem se govori ter o čem se ne govori, temveč tudi v čigavem jeziku se kolektivni spomin sme ohranjati, kako zveni odpor in kdo se trudi, da bi ga razumel.

Andrina Mračnikar, born 1981, studied directing and screenwriting at the Vienna Film Academy with Michael Haneke and Walter Wippersberg.
