The Stone Speakers (Kameni Govornici)
NAME OF FILM: THE STONE SPEAKERS (KAMENI GOVORNICI)
DIRECTOR(S): Igor Drljača
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: In Igor Drljača’s first nonfiction feature, the Bosnian-born director explores his home country’s heritage and identity through the attractions and landmarks that in recent years have drawn visitors from across the globe. With grace and agility, the film’s camera crisscrosses the landscape, quietly observing tourists as they view statues, pyramids, and various religious sites, each tied to a self-styled, postwar ideology the country hopes to reinforce through the Balkan tourism boom. In The Stone Speakers, myth and memory share space in both the physical world and the collective unconscious, highlighting the danger of culturally prescribed narratives.
