Europe East and West: Film, History, and Mourning

Director of BARZAKH Mantas Kvedaravicius, will present a paper on his film. In a Chechen city recovering after the war a man disappears. As daily life goes by, those in search are drawn into the world where encounters with diviners and legal advisors, with torturers and tortured, with secret prisons and mythical lakes, become commonplace. When the disappeared do return in dreams, they are said to come from Barzakh – a land between the living and the dead.
