The film is a powerful story of the secret underground tunnel that the citizens of the city of Sarajevo dug out to escape the four-year long siege during the Bosnian war (1992-1995). The tunnel was used to smuggle the people out of the city, but also to smuggle in food, medicine, and money to the besieged population who lived in terrible conditions. The tunnel became a symbol of the brutality of the Bosnian war, the resilience of the suffering population, as well as the involvement of the international community in the Balkans conflict.
A panel discussion immediately follows with film-maker Nedim Loncarevic and journalist Beatrice Toulon.
When & Where
Center for Collaborative and International Arts at Georgia State University
The Center for Collaborative and International Arts (CENCIA) is a research center in the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgia State University. It brings together creative writers, visual artists, composers, musicians, filmmakers, and scholars engaged in arts-related research with scholars in disciplines across the academy. CENCIA's primary mission of enriching campus and community life through engagement in the arts is changing the nature of research on campus by placing emphasis on connecting arts research to the public we serve. Our overriding research concerns remain: How does this arts research affect the community? How does it affect our city and other cities? How does it affect the world?
All CENCIA sponsored programs are free and open to the public.
