Travelogue: Dubrovnik, Croatia 1969

Posted on 11/20/2018 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

In this episode of Travelogue, we enter through the outer old walls of Dubrovnik to explore the city as it was in 1969, recorded on 16mm footage by Boston lawyer and avid traveler Samuel Horovitz. His candid shots capture moments with the many people he meets, and present the city before it was one of the Mediterranean's most popular travel destinations. Through Horovitz’s lens, we explore a city that has changed: a row of people waiting for an open-air tram would today be boarding a bus. Other parts of the city remain mostly unchanged since 1969 (not to mention since the Middle Ages!). Two of these everlasting places are the bustling outdoor market and the Pile Gate. For history buffs, this is a wonderful look at the pearl of the Adriatic!

Produced by David Conover & Paul Villanova
