    • Synopsis
    • “the place we left” is a film about six people, all born in Sarajevo, who left the city mostly due to the war. some stayed abroad, some came back.
      they talk about their experiences leaving their city, settling down somewhere else, or being caught in the middle. 
      “the place we left” concentrates on their personal attempts to make sense of the circumstances they surprisingly found themselves in, when in 1992 sarajevo a european metropolis came under siege. 
      blocks of talking heads are accompanied by pure visual shots: 
      still shots of the interviewees facing camera, shots of apartment interiors, pans that link private space with public space.
