The Eclipse

Nataša Urban
Norway
 - 2022

On 11 August 1999, most of Europe was engrossed in the total solar eclipse, which momentarily enveloped the Earth in darkness. But in Serbia, people were busy barricading themselves in their homes and shelters for fear of the dark. Using this event as a metaphor for the nation’s unclean conscience about the consequences of its political choices, in this essay documentary the director confronts her country’s wartime and criminal past, and the evil that is still on the loose today.
