  • Title:
    Romani Snapshots : A Day in Sarajevo
  • Author: Vanja Čelebićić director.; Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, production company.
  • Description: This film explores the Sarajevan Roma's sense of identification, belonging and memory. It portrays their daily lives through snapshots of their concurrent realities, where painful memories, laughter and religious beliefs exist side by side. The simultaneous screening of the four episodes draws attention to the ethnographic filmmaker's dilemma of how to best represent her subjects and the aspects of their lives to be highlighted. It also engages the complexities of portraying reality and challenges the standard narrative approach to documentary film-making. The recent war in Bosnia-Herzegovina serves as an undercurrent to the four short films. The effects of the conflict are apparent on the former refugee Nermina or on the veteran soldier and garbage collector Husen. The reliance on the charitable Islamic organizations that provide food for the city's poor is testament to the post-war impoverishment of many people living in Sarajevo.
