Beyond text?

Jeff Daniel Silva

Manchester University Press

Balkan Rhapsodies: 78 Short Films is a project that began in 1999, when Silva made a trip to Serbia and Kosovo just a few weeks after the NATO bombings. Out of this experience he developed an episodic, personal film that arranges a variety of material, from intimate testimonials to observational footage and appropriated and manipulated images. This ‘free form’ documentary uses an ‘aesthetic of ambiguity’ to reflect on the traumas and absurdities of the past while trying to avoid trivialization or becoming a polemic.

Keywords:   Documentary, Sarajevo, Bombing, Trauma, Memory, ambiguity
