We lived our ordinary lives
How does one transform during wartime? In WE LIVED OUR ORDINARY LIVES excerpts from guilty pleas from the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia are combined with childhood memories of the siege of Sarajevo. By asking a moslim girl that lived through the war, now in her early 20s, the same questions about her sense of belonging before, during and after the war, the film shows the transformation people go through during wartime. Without ever mentioning the actual context, the story becomes timeless and universal. In 2012 it is exactly 20 years ago the siege of Sarajevo began.
