Synopsis From the top, a light stares the faces of a child and an old man, immersed in the darkness of the night and the forest. What is this light? On one hand, it will be the double revelation of the faces, either in the narrative dimension, either in the film strip (the film was recorded on 16 mm). On the other hand, it will be the lighting of this encounter, face-to-face, recognition of the otherness, an alterity or even a friendship, a becoming-other, and actually we will never conclude if these two faces are the same character or not in different times. As well, we will never conclude if the story happens during the 90s, within the Bosnian War, or during the II World War, in the 40s, because somebody screams: “fascist!”. It doesn’t matter... War is war and Gil Mata captures the war forces making it visible, inscribing it on the visual dimension through the creation of these resistant-images.
