Synopsis
“Today is 11th June 1993. The war has been going on for very long. I’ve tried everything to get out, to save myself, nothing worked. The only thing left is to make this videotape that I will give to my son, he to his, and so on, until a time machine is invented and someone watching this will come and get me out of this."
A group of young people imagines 1993 with a lot of black humor the escape from the besieged city of Sarajevo with a time machine. Thieme activates the appeal of the past with the help of translator/ speaker Grace Sungeun Kim addressing the future anew. How will we react?
Today Is 11th June 1993 was developed on the basis of an intense engagement with the Library Hamdija Kreševljaković Video Arhiv in Sarajevo, a private collection of amateur videos, in which the inhabitants of Sarajevo documented their lives during the siege.
