Sutjeska film

Synopsis:

When the war broke out the director was trying to remember and that's why we returned to his ancestors' shadows and "messages" written upon gravestones called stećci. They are cut in a typical folklore style. The end of the film is marked with new/acient experiences of destruction and killing. Warnings of our ancestors didn't, unfortunately, help us neither this time. Cementeries, gravestones and cities have been destroyed.
