Kad umrem, radite šta hoćete
When I Die You Can Do What You Want
Adela Jušić, Bosnia and Herzegovina 2011, 19 Min. OV with english subtitles
Originally conceived as a video installation for a gallery space, this powerful work from Adela Jušić unleashes its full artistic potential in the darkness of the cinema on the big screen: a full frontal view of the wrinkled, pained face of her grandmother as the artist colors her hair. The soundtrack features Jušić whispering the memories of her now deceased grandmother in an unbroken stream; a woman who, at the end of her life, appeared to draw a kind of conclusion through a comparison of the two wars she survived.
Before the Fall There Was No Fall, Episode 2: Surfaces
Anna Dasović, Netherlands/Austria 2020, 20 Min. OV with english subtitles
Anna Dasović examines a series of wall drawings by Dutch soldiers in a UN camp in the immediate vicinity of Srebrenica that were never intended for the public. Before the Fall There Was No Fall, Episode 2: Surfaces revolves around rhetorical structures, not only those that make violence visible but those which conceal the politically undesirable. Focus is placed on the figure of the "bystander" and the ways in which the "unimaginable" and the "unrepresentable" are evoked in order to deflect responsibility thereby allowing violence to occur.
