FOLLOWING THE TRACES OF SARAJEVO
Bosnian language with English subttles. (34 min)
More Details..
The character of the film “Following the Traces of Sarajevo” is defined by the fact that Sarajevo, just like Jerusalem, is the only city where, next to one another, we find the temples of four religions – a mosque, an Orthodox and a Catholic church and a synagogue. Sarajevo is also a city and a museum of the epochs long passed. One of the most reliable traces and proofs of those bygone times are graves and cemeteries.
This film covers a 600-year time span, telling the tale of specific features of cemeteries of different confessions and emphasizing their uniqueness. Comparing its medieval tombstones, known as stećci, its Muslim nišans, its Jewish tombstones with the modern ones, we gen in insight into their deep mutual bonds and the interweaved influences of the medieval Bosnia on the country as we know it.

This is a documentary film about two colleagues - Mehmed and Vlado, who work at the undertaker's firm "BURIAL" in Sarajevo. One is the gravedigger and the other works in the dissecting room.

Their attitude and approach to everyday reality have different points of departure and destination. The only constant feature shared by Mehmed and Vlado, as well as by their colleagues, is their "empathy with those in mourning". This definitely leaves indelible scars on the psyche of both of them; that is why, according to statistic, their average life in retirement is about three years. Fortunately, or unfortunately, by the end of the day, the people dealing with this profession have never failed anyone.
