New Visitors Forever

Scene for a New Heritage is a film trilogy by David Maljkovich. I know I saw parts of the film somewhere, in some exhibition, but I have no idea where.
"The film presents a futuristic world set in the year 2045. Shot over three years spanning 2004 – 2006, the first film focuses on a group of travellers visiting a memorial park, erected in Petrova Gora, Croatia, for victims of the Second World War under the Communist government of Yugoslavia. As they visit the monument, debate is sparked as to its long-forgotten meaning – it means nothing to them, just as their strange dialect is alien to us. "
I'm slightly obsessed with the aluminum foil collages and the retro looking maquettes and film stills.
Have a look:
Most of the film revolves around this monument. Parked next to it is a futuristically aluminim-foil wrapped car. Is it a Trabant?
In the show of course.
