Landscapes of War, Landscapes of Peace

  • Germany
  • Serbia

In three autonomous yet interconnected chapters, the experimental documentary Landscapes of War, Landscapes of Peace seeks to explore the possibilities of a landscape-focused approach to the topics of war and memory. Structured along the theme of ‘past-present-future’. The film uses a combination of archive, live action, and underwater footage to depict the chronological events of the Kosovo War of 1998 to 1999. Along this journey, the film incorporates and examines the questions of individual and cultural memory, exploring the existence of alternative cinematic methods of accounting for the past and landscapes as potential transmitters of complex historical narratives.
