Film Times of Day was made after a music composition of the same title, a concerto for saxophone and chamber orchestra, performed by the author and his New Ritual Ensemble. The film was createdby Boris Kovač, Deneš Debrei, Snežana Ađanski i Tatjana Grujić, and it is based on contemporary dance expression interacting with Vojvodina outdoors, experienced during 4 striking times of day. Morning, noon, evening and midnight represent both four parts of the music score, as well as four subject matters of the film. Performers include Deneš Debrei, Snežana Adjanski, Boris Kovač and a dance group DaNS. Cameraman Ivan Milinkov Vanjus, film editing Boris Kovač and Zlatko Zlatković. Production KACAHARA MM Studio.
