It is a documentary film about the way the 44-month siege in Bosnia-Herzegovina’s capital has been depicted and reconstructed in the various trials before the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
The film, produced on the occasion of 20th anniversary of the beginning of the siege, features the residents of Sarajevo witnessing before the court, recounting their ordeals and the suffering of their families and friends. It also features evidence from international eyewitnesses, including renowned war correspondents, whose news reports from Sarajevo were presented in the trial. The film exclusively uses the courtroom recordings provided by the ICTY Audio-Visual Unit, and wartime documentary footage admitted into evidence at the various Sarajevo trials.
