VO ceha / Subtitrari in engleza

La zece ani de cand fugise din Sarajevo in Cehia, Ivana Milosevicova se intoarce in tara sa natala, pentru a afla cum e viata acum; sa puna intrebari localnicilor si pe baza raspunsurilor sa aleaga unde ii este locul. Ceea ce gaseste seamana izbitor de mult cu descrierea facuta de un jurnalist bosniac – o vie arsa, in proces de insanatosire.
Suntem martorii unei scindari politice, culturale si sociale: inmormantarea in masa a 640 de bosniaci musulmani; comemorarea victimelor de razboi sarbe; auto-proclamatii, tari ca piatra, plini de ei – croatii; si mai ales barurile, unde alcoolul aprinde scanteia opiniilor de toate felurile.
La fiecare oprire, istoria si casa se redefinesc in cantec datorita convingerilor curajoase ale unei natiuni. Pentru a putea contextualiza trecutul, Ivana se intoarce la poezie: Mi-am petrecut noaptea uitandu-ma la cer si n-am inteles nimic, chiar nimic.

ENGLISH VERSION

Ten years after fleeing from war-torn Sarajevo to the Czech Republic, Ivana Milosevicova returns to her native country to ask questions about life today, and with those answers, to make a choice as to who she is and where she belongs. Her quest reveals a country that one Bosnian journalist describes as a burned down vineyard in natural recovery.
We witness a partition of politics, culture and society: the mass funeral for 640 Muslim Bosniaks; the commemoration of Serbian war victims; the self-proclaimed tough-as-stone Croatians who boast pride in their hearts and souls; and the local pubs, where spirits loosen the fiery spark of civil opinion. At every stop, history and home is redefined in song by the spirited conviction of a national. To give context to the past, Milosevicova must look to verse: I spend the night looking at the sky and I understand nothing, nothing at all.
