A trilogy of short silent films accompanied with a text, during which the audience had to read out loud words and images. This conceptual work revealed the artist’s interest in the street design which later became visible in his photographic books. This is also the most lucrative cinematic year for Stilionvić: he makes Bježi (Run Away) and Piši ne samoće (Write about Un-loneliness), a film shot in negative, as well as the only long feature, the 70-minute film Tresla se brda rodio se miš (Much Ado about Nothing). They were shown at many amateur film festivals in the 1970s in Zagreb, Split, Pula, Belgrade, Skopje, Ljubljana, Kranj, as well as in the former West Germany, and Poland. Those films were awarded at festivals in Novi Sad (1972), Zagreb (1974) and Split (1975). From 1973 he started hitchhiking with Branka (who was an art history student at the time) in Europe (Italy, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Great Britain, Austria …) where he visited museums and galleries and studied old and new art.
