Synopsis:

Present-day Bosnia-Herzegovina is a country still reeling from the war in the early 90s. The Bosnian economy never recovered, and the country remains divided. In order to cope, many towns have transformed themselves into unique tourist destinations that bring together history, religion, politics and folklore. The tourist sites promoted are not only a reflection of people’s attempts to make a livelihood but are also a means to promote and establish competing narratives about the country’s past, present and future. THE STONE SPEAKERS explores four towns in Bosnia-Herzegovina through their tourism, slowly unravelling these competing narratives.
