When Bosnian-Serb forces began shelling Sarajevo in 1992, an officer of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian army made an appeal to all inhabitants of the city with video cameras to “start filming, because their material would definitely influence events.” Whether prompted by this call or not, many of those who possessed a camera attempted to capture the atmosphere of the besieged city, resulting in this extraordinary film. At once engaging, horrifying and funny, these “home movies” provide a stark testimony of the courageous spirit of a people under siege, trying to live “normal” lives against all odds.
