Šta ostaje, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, 2009, 30 min, Digi Beta, History, Personal View, Portrait
The film is about the empty spaces left behind in the wake of war and violence. The film is composed of long static wide shots of places and land- scapes in present day Bosnia Herzegovina. The ordinary banality and beauty of the places shown, forms a contrast to the fact that atrocities were committed during the Bosnian War from 1992 until 1995 at all of these sites.
“What remains” is a filmic memorial beyond the ordinary limits of representation and understanding. The places in the film are present for their own sake. They do not explain themselves to us. They throw back the answers we ask them.
