To return to the Balkans

The Unforgiven / Shapeshifters
Regissør: Lars Feldballe-Petersen/Sophie Vukovic
(Finland og Danmark/Sverige)

Two documentaries portray people who for various reasons had to leave the former Yugoslavia. For equally different reasons, they also return.

"My name is Esad Landzo. I've been a prison guard in the Celebici prison camp [in Bosnia and Herzegovina]. I really did terrible things. ”That's how the documentary begins The Unforgiven, a film about the difficulties and possibilities of healing from a dark past. Landzo himself articulates the core question: "Would I be able to forgive someone like me?" He has committed heinous crimes, including torture and murder. Does he deserve a normal life? How can he possibly get this? And what about his victims?

The Unforgiven had its world premiere during CPH: DOX in March, and immediately brings the viewer up to date with the story: the Bosnia war started in 1992. . .
