        A documentary journey in response to the Belfast Sarajevo Initiative. Filmed and Directed by Declan Keeney www.echogateproductions.com Contact: info@echogateproductions.com The Siege of Sarajevo is the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare. It began on the 5th of April, 1992 and officially ended on the 29th of February 1996. UNICEF reported that of the estimated 65,000 to 80,000 children in the city: at least 40 per cent had been directly shot at by snipers; 51 per cent had seen someone killed; 39 per cent had seen one or more family members killed. These children have now grown up but echoes of the past still haunt the fabric of the space that surrounds them. How do these memories inform what they have become? This documentary journeys around Sarajevo, juxtaposing stories of the past with present day images of the Bosnian city. Belfast filmmaker Declan Keeney explores very personal first hand accounts of life during the siege and reflects on the no­tion that post conflict societies in the rebuilding of lives, space and a sense of place, can not ignore the legacy of the past, however difficult.The past is not dead. Duration 28min. Funded by the Centre for Excellence in the Creative and Performing Arts, in collaboration with the Belfast Sarajevo Initiative and The Academy of Arts, Sarajevo. Specials thanks are offered to all the staff and students of the Academy and Anna Newell.

          A personal journey of the aftermath of the Bosnian War with interwoven stories of the Selimovic family from Srebrenica who resettled in Columbia, Missouri after the fall of the former UN "safe area" that resulted in genocide. Ten years later, the family re-visits the July 1995 massacre of more than 8,000 Bosnians, considered the worst single act of genocide in Europe since the end of the Second World War. Neither Here Nor There traces the complexities of starting over in a new place when ties to the past remain unbreakable. Awarded Best Heartland Feature at Kansas City Film Festival. Directed and Produced by Kerri Yost, Beth Pike, Stephen Hudnell, and Elizabeth Federici.

                    The Bosnian War followed the breakup of the Republic of Yugoslavia. Mainly a territorial conflict, the war, which lasted three years, from 1992-1995, was fought between various religious and ethnic factions. Some calculations place casualty figures in the hundreds of thousands. For more, visit the Center for Balkan Development http://www.balkandevelopment.org/edu_bos.html.

                      CITIZEN SOLDIER is a painting and documentary film project focused on bringing positive attention to the accounts of soldiers returning and returned from foreign wars. These dialogues will be related through the medium of portrait painting and video interview documentation. A series of portraits both visual and audio will be developed and act as living symbols for cultural healing and social unity. By the recapitulation of personal histories a larger socio-political exposition is related detailing the impact of war. The personal histories are not for consumption, or intended to exploit or trivialize. This will not be a sensationalized retelling of combat stories, but to offer an intimate portrait of the persons who pay the price of war. The project is an effort to dignify those who have committed to serve this country and its interests at the basest level. Our stories will open up a dialogue between soldiers as citizens and citizens who are not soldiers. The partnership, citizen/soldier, will dictate the paintings. Portraits in their creation will be forms of reflective meditation, of sensitive communication and community building. With painting the artist will connect with earliest modes of graphic representation while investigating the efficacy and legitimacy of art, both organic and digital, in our culture of spectacle…including the spectacle of war. The honest interviews will be their own cultural reckoning and unburdening of the past. By using stop action animation technique the portraits will come to life in stride with each audio interview playing alongside it. Painting and digital technology will unite metaphorically embodying states of re-emergence and re-integration. Within the collaborative personal connection of portrait painting and story telling the war machine becomes humanized. Painting as a means of inquiry and fellowship manifests an act of protest and peace. As an exploration into the imperious drive to warfare- global betterment or elitist profiteering… where do the soldiers and citizens find themselves in this equation? A larger community is involved, outside of the confines of the military experience. At some point, the soldier rejoins, society, not as a soldier, but as a veteran. The interview dialogues address deeper moral ambiguities regarding war and all that it affects. Jack Leamy www.jackleamy.com
