1395 Dana bez Crvene

1395 Days Without Red

 
Während der Belagerung Sarajevos zwischen 1992 und 1996 mussten die Einwohner tagtäglich Straßen queren, die im Visier von Scharfschützen lagen. In diesem Zeitraum von exakt 1395 Tagen wurden tausende Menschen auf dem Weg in die Arbeit, zu Freunden oder in den Supermarkt getötet oder angeschossen. In 1395 DANA BEZ CRVENE bewegt sich eine unauffällig gekleidete Frau durch das heutige Sarajevo, als läge die Stadt noch immer unter serbischem Beschuss. Sie duckt sich vor imaginären Scharfschützen und rennt im Zickzack-Kurs durch die Straßen – stets die Ungewissheit im Hinterkopf, ob sie unversehrt ihr Ziel erreichen wird.

The siege of Sarajevo lasted for one thousand three hundred and ninety-five days from 1992 to 1996. During the siege, thousands of citizens had to cross streets threatened by snipers every day: to go to work, buy food, visit friends, relatives and lovers, keep on living. Some 10,000 people were killed and over 56,000 were wounded by sniper bullets and exploding grenades. The film follows a woman as she makes her way through this route. She stops, hesitates, runs. She waits, calculates and bends down. Every crossing is a new challenge and new calculation. The woman is reliving the experience of others in the place where the trauma occurred. It is her individual journey in their collective past. Whatever has happened beforehand is happening again, now.
