Reflections. Director's Cut

 
Über Spiegelungen in Fotoschaukästen zeigt uns REFLECTIONS. DIRECTOR’S CUT das moderne Leben in der Stadt Sarajewo. Die Schwarz-Weiß-Fotografien stammen von Milomir Kovačević, der diese 1992 während des kriegerischen Konflikts in der bosnischen Hauptstadt aufnahm. Unsere Reise beginnt auf einer Brücke in einem neuen Stadtviertel: Wir sehen zeitgenössische Wohnbauten und vernehmen die idyllischen Geräusche des Flusses. Dann finden wir uns in einem Innenhof wieder. Gespiegelt in der Abbildung eines jugendlichen Soldaten mit Maschinenpistole beobachten wir, wie die friedliebenden Bewohnerinnen und Bewohner – vorwiegend Kinder und Ältere – Alltägliches verrichten. Im Hintergrund ruft eine Mutter den Namen ihres Sohnes. REFLECTIONS erschien ursprünglich zusammen mit zwölf weiteren Filmen in der Anthologie BRIDGES OF SARAJEVO.

REFLECTIONS. DIRECTOR’S CUT shows life in contemporary Sarajevo, as reflected through glass covers of the black-and-white photographs of its’ defenders, taken by the Bosnian photographer Milomir Kovačević in 1992 during the siege of the city. It is the part of the film THE BRIDGES OF SARAJEVO. 13 European directors explore the theme of Sarajevo; what this city has represented in European history over the past hundred years, and what Sarajevo stands for today in Europe. These eminent filmmakers of different generations and origins offer exceptional singular styles and visions.
