The film aims to question the state of a post-war society that, in rewriting and falsifying its own history, establishes new national and religious foundations on a denial and erasure of collective memory through the promotion of a theocracy.
Over the course of several years, the Serbian Orthodox Church and nationalist groups have been reconstructing the past. In the town of Trebinje, in the far south of the Republika Srpska, their desire has materialized itself in the construction of imitation period churches, the excavation of artificial archeological ruins, and the demolition of an Austro-Hungarian fortress that will supply stone for the construction site of a mock ancient village in Visegrad, close to the eastern border with Serbia. The village is planned as a stage set for Emir Kusturica’s forthcoming feature film, after which it will be transformed into tourist site.
The act of excavating, transforming and moving stone recalls the destruction in Bosnia from 1992 to 1995 that led to the massive, forced displacement of the Bosnian population. The film will include testimonies of deportees from Trebinje and Visegrad, who recall the mass crimes perpetuated in the region during the war (massacres, wide-scale rape, mass deportation, etc.) along with documentation of the recent remodeling of a part of the Bosnian landscape as a means of enforcing a myth of an exclusive Serbian and Orthodox heritage in the region.
