I’m not at all happy with how this video turned out. It has so much unachieved potential. But men tried to murder me just a few hours before I shot this and Francesco was traumatized and had to go home immediately, taking the only remaining camera with him. So I did what I could in the hours I was given. In a way, it was cathartic.
As a child, Sarajevo was the first piece of history I "witnessed". It fundamentally altered the entire course of my life, knowing what could happen to us. What does happen to us. It opened my eyes to the other side of the world.
I could have made this video more objective like the others in the series, but I chose not to. Not because I think it will change minds, or because I think it makes the story better. I did it because it was how I felt. And acting on what we feel is precisely what got us here.
Here’s to hoping you feel something wiser than the rest of us.
Zygmund de Somogyi created the music for this season and it has been really well done. I didn’t ask for this, he volunteered. A good person, that Ziggy: https://www.zdscomposer.co.uk/
