This film was shot in Sarajevo in 1995 right after the Serbian/ Bosnian conflict (1992/1995), during which the city was kept under siege from the Serbian snipers. It examines the points of view of three artists, Christian, Jewish and Muslim who lived through the conflict while still making their arts.
It was based on the art exhibit titled “Witness of Existence” produced in Sarajevo in 1993 and released worldwide afterwards. It was made in collaboration with Studio 21, the Obala Art Center in Sarajevo and the Soros Foundation.
