by Matteo BASTIANELLI, Italy, 2013, 52′,
Produced by Matteo Bastianelli, DI.CO.SPE.
A journey into the memory of Bosnia. A dream, an interior image of a lost generation, traces of an imperceptible line between what happened and what could be. A continuous voyage of selfawareness amidst the horror of the Srebrenica genocide and the memory of an ethnic cleansing that oes beyond time. A nation still locked among dreams of release and pressure towards nationalism, in a transition still present between past and future.
