„Was bleibt I Šta ostaje I What remains / Re-visited" is a re-encounter with the places and landscapes that already played the leading role in Thieme's „Was bleibt I Šta ostaje I What remains" (Berlinale 2010): Sites of War Crimes in the 1990s in Bosnia Herzegovina. Ten years later, Thieme returns to them – with those past recordings in tow. „Was bleibt I Šta ostaje I What remains / Re-visited" is an experimental filmic setup that invites interactions from locals without forcing them. The result is a careful approach to the places as well as the people, permeated by the questions of what was, what is, and how one can speak about it.
