‘War & Peace in the Balkans’ screens at the Festival of Tolerance - the Jewish Film Festival Zagreb on June 1st 2016 (KIC "Budo Tomovic", Podgorica).
The film uses rare archive footage to give landmark reassessment of the Balkan’s history, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WW1.
The documentary was created in the context of a cross-media project exploring WW1 in the Balkans, in collaboration with the Goethe Institut.
The project comprises an exhibition with the work of five photographers who captured the reality of war and life in the Balkans in 1914-18; a series of short videos on the web platform ‘Memories Europe. South East’ based on interviews with leading historians including Mark Mazower, Christopher Clark and Jay Winter; and an educational programme for children aged 11-18.
