(Macedonia) Documentary Film:
“(Extra)terrestrial Lee” is a short documentary story about a tiny man who lives in a world who is wide several galaxies. Miki Lee Trajchevski is a resident of Shtip, Macedonia, where among the local population is known like the most educated homeless person in Shtip. Living his pastoral life in the nature around Shtip, occasionally he is in a position to be intergalactic agent between the aliens and the populace of Shtip. With his recognizable style: worn out jacket, dark glasses that he always wears, long untidy beard, white bucketand gunny bag, he wanders every day at the streets of Shtip. The film reveals the secrets of the aliens around Shtip with whom Miki communicates, shown trough his activities and rituals of connecting with the third kind, also interviews and telling from the local population, regarding this problem. Here we open the question whether Extra-Terrestrial Lee has made up these appearances of UFOs on the sky above Shtip or in that entire story there is possibility of truth?
The documentary film opens the subject on Trajchevski’s life, about the insignificance of material life and about the everyday activities and habits of our main character. Although Miki’s claims are a little bit surreal, unacceptable and insane, the stories of other citizens of the city beneath the fortress Isar and the articles and arguments of different mass-media will put you in doubt.
