IN WAR AND REVOLUTION
Experimental-documentary, digi beta, colour, stereo, 15’ 03’’
The experimental-documentary video In War and Revolution speaks about both the personal and collective amnesia that occurred during political changes and the war of the early 90s in Croatia. Through a structure of parallel editing there is the interview with the author’s 97-year-old grandmother who tries to remember her youth as a teacher during the anti-fascist movement in WWII by looking at a photograph from the book The School in War and Revolution written by her late husband, the author’s grandfather. These images are interpolated by shots of book fragments from their private library and interviews with several intellectuals from Zagreb on the subject of the removal not only of this particular book but many others labelled as inappropriate or communist by the new Croatian government in the early 90s on, thus disappearing from bookstores and libraries on ideological grounds.
