Bosnia-Herzegovina is still reeling from the civil war in the early 90s. The Bosnian economy never recovered, and the country remains divided. In order to cope, many towns transformed themselves into unique tourist destinations to promote and establish competing narratives. The film explores four towns through their tourism, slowly unravelling their own narratives.
The Bosnian War was one of the largest events in Eastern Europe in the early 1990s. After the war, Bosnia-Herzegovina is still left with war wounds and economic recession. Director Drljaca looks for people reforming the community and trying to find a new life. He captures those fighting to bring tourism, finding stories and turning the processes into a story. This is not about simply creating capitalism infiltrated products, but a healing process. Each story from the villages is common yet lies a community-specific mood and voice. As the camera films the village, it shows that living is a process of a colorful story in the combination of the own history, wound and a story of every individual. [LEE Sang-yong]
