Ethnische Idyllen - Skizzen aus einem Nachkriegsland

Ethnic Idylls - Sketches from a Postwar Country

Christian Berger
After the war in Croatia. Everyday life and the way things were during this civil war. A war which was started by the Others, a war no one wanted and which is not really over, although the fighting has stopped. The breakup of the former Yugoslavia and the birth of a new nation is the backdrop in front of which people live their lives. Tenderness and hate, great expectations and profound disappointments in one and the same person lead to an escape to idylls and the new era. The material used in this film, originally shot for a feature film, has been prepared for a dual projection. It is an attempt to develop a new narrative technique using documentary material.
