THE PLACE WE LEFT. Sarajevo in a slow pan: The city feels serene, almost majestic. Then suddenly the horrors of the military siege of 1992 flare up before our eyes. Thieme foregoes conventional TV images and instead opts for narrative ones.
It is a story of six people who were forced to flee Sarajevo during this time, set against her visual conception. What does it mean to be forced to start your life all over again? Do you harbour guilt if you flee to save your own life?
