Short Synopsis:

Upsomene 677 is a story of our time. But the time to tell this story is short. Today, the new generation in Bosnia is fighting for an EU membership and is threatened by a possible return to war. In contrast to their parents, they are desperate to find a way to live together for a different, peaceful tomorrow. Will they succeed?

Review:

There were six hundred and seventy seven concentration camps, prisons and rape camps set up during the Bosnian war. This hard-hitting documentary is about the horrific legacy of these camps in modern day Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Giving an inter-generational perspective to the fallout of that conflict, Uspomene 677 centres on a series of powerful interviews with 3 survivors and 3 teenagers born after the war. With members from each of the main ethnic and religious groups featured, the film gives a truly rounded view of the war and its effect on the region.

For the older generation the memories are painful, and difficult to relive. Yet the younger generation have only a limited understanding of what lead to the war, and just what it was like to live through it. Characters talk honestly of their experiences on both sides of the conflict and how they live with what was done to them, and what they did to others. The young generation admit that tension levels are as high as ever, and wonder how this can be happening all over again. Shocking, powerful and moving, Uspomene 677 warns of the danger and betrayal in the act of forgetting what happened less than 20 years ago.
