Eci peci peć

Eci Peci Peć is a short documentary film that is based on video recordings (from 2012) of attempts at the reconstruction of the technological process of the production of prehistoric ceramic vessels. Experiments were carried out as a part of the project Technology and Social Aspects of Prehistoric Pottery Production and Use, initiated in collaboration of the Center for Experimental Archaeology and the Institute of Archaeology. We tried to integrate the results of these surveys and present them to the public with a short amateur documentary film. The film shows some of the experiments that were carried out and they are related to the process of baking the vessels in an ideal reconstruction of the horizontal pottery kiln. Archaeologists of the Center for Experimental  Archaeology and the Institute of Archaeology, the students of the Academy of Dramatic Art and many volunteers participated in the realization of the film.

The film premiered on July 20, 2013 in the Lapidarium of the Archaeological Museum in Zagreb.
