A Day on the Drina / Dzień na Drinie

Running time: 17'

BIH 2011, 17’

As if they were departing on an outing, a group of men board a bus that will take them to a dried up river bed. It is an excavation site. Parts of skeletons appear – those of more than 250 Bosnians who between 1992 and 1995 were killed by soldiers of the Republika Srpska in Višegrad and the surrounding area. The camera follows what is happening almost casually, and it is this neutral approach particularly, without questions or spoken commentary, that makes the film so oppressive.
