Image and sound, two basic film elements in Bratko Bibič’s musical-film project In the Family Garden 1–3 (Na domačem vrtu 1–3, 1999–2005), engage in breaking meanings, intertwining and emancipating from each other, merging into an experience of a cinematic event as a (seemingly) unique live improvisation that considers both the fundamental layers of film experience itself and film as a medium in its “materiality”, but mostly as a medium and a vessel of ideology(ies). The article dives into the original interlacement of image and sound and dwells on their interconnectedness, as well as their ideological component, which is considered critically through Bibič’s intervention as a way of creating a new, original meta-text.
