The ravages of war, as witnessed by a nine-year-old boy...

The ravages of war, as witnessed by a nine-year-old boy, shape history in this short personal documentary. Igor Drljača masterfully assembles family video footage from his nineties boyhood in Sarajevo, recollecting through narration an old fear that his desperate attempts to avoid a poor grade on an art assignment have lead to a devastating war.
