His projects include Mirage, an experimental documentary exploring the marks of displacement and longing in the city of Dubai; A Letter to Dad,an essay-film about family, war and forgetting; and Museum of the Revolution, a multi-channel video installation on one of the most prominent architectural projects of socialist Yugoslavia, which never got built. Keca's documentary films have consistently screened at leading festivals: IDFA, DOK Leipzig, Full Frame, Jihlava IDFF, etc., winning multiple awards and critical acclaim. More recently, his installation Museum of the Revolution was on display at the 2014 Venice Biennale of Architecture and has been touring venues including Whitechapel Gallery in London and Project 88 in Mumbai.
