Dubina Dva

Depth Two

 
Dubina Dva – ein dokumentarischer Thriller über ein Massengrab im Umland Belgrads und eine geschickte Assemblage aus auditiven Zeugenaussagen und Bildern von jenem Ort, an dem während des Balkankonfliktes unfassbare Gräueltaten begangen wurden. Mittels eines hypnotischen und meditativen Gestus spricht Regisseur Ognjen Glavonić die Emotionen des Publikums an, um so jene Geschichten zu bergen, die hier geflissentlich tief unter der Erde begraben wurden.

1999: While NATO was bombing Yugoslavia, a truck containing fifty-three dead bodies plunged into the Danube near the border with Romania. No enquiries were carried out. Previously, in Suva Reka, Kosovo: Serbian police herd villagers together. A woman experiences terrible things, bodies disappear into remote mass graves. People as little more than mere matter. Monstrous events, each and every detail organized according to a logistics of cruelty by a state enacting a deadly secret plan aimed at its own population. Ognjen Glavonić’s Depth Two succeeds in measuring truth. The documentary draws on the mechanics of a thriller to reconstruct the atrocities, allowing eyewitnesses from back then to have their say in voiceover, their testimonies accompanied by images from the present. We hear the voices of perpetrators but also that of a victim. (Berlin International Film Festival)
