Flim Screening of Depth Two

From February until June 2016 over 700 citizens of Serbia and Kosovo saw the documentary film Depth Two. The film was aired in Kragujevac, Čačak, Subotica, Pančevo, Belgrade, Novi Pazar, Niš, as well as in Pristina in Kosovo. Every screening was followed by a discussion with the authors, in which victims and their families, civil society activists, students, journalists, artists and other experts from various fields participated. This short video collage highlights some of the discussion moments and messages of citizens of Serbia and Kosovo to their compatriots and representatives of institutions. The film, a co-production of HLC and Non Aligned Films, premiered at the 66th International film festival in Berlin (Berlinale) in February 2016, and was subsequently shown at festivals in Thessaloniki, Wiesbaden, Belgrade, Novi Sad and London. It won the Award for Best Film Editing at the Beldocs International documentary film festival in Belgrade, and the Grand Jury Award at the Open City festival in London. In late July 2016 the film won the Critics Award at the Atlántida Film Fest in Spain. The film is a part of the Batajnica Memorial Initiative, aimed at creating a memorial site for victims found in Batajnica.
