The video documentation of Žilnik’s work comprises excerpts from most of his films that entail a significant and functional illustration of his work. This section also includes three "making-of" documentations that bear witness to Žilnik's working methods on three films: Marble Ass (1995) loosely adhering to a screenplay, featuring a mixed cast of non-professional and professional actors and dialogue that was chiefly improvised in accordance with some of the interpreters' real life experiences; Wanderlust (1998) adhering to a screenplay, featuring a mixed cast of non-professional and professional actors; Kenedi is Getting Married (2007) loosely adhering to a script but bordering on documentary, featuring non-professional actors and totally improvised dialogue – the semi-documentary quality deriving from Žilnik's unassuming observations of his real-life characters. In all three examples, we first see Žilnik's work “behind the camera”, in which he is either setting up a particular scene or working with his actors, then we see the final edited version of the scene that was actually filmed and incorporated in the completed film, all of which gives us some insights into the whole process. We hope that these three documentations, which in also effectively conveying the general working atmosphere on their respective sets, ultimately pay tribute to the many members of Žilnik's film crews and close associates who have been so important to Žilnik's oeuvre in its entirety.
