I saw my movie hundreds of times. But until I see it in a cinema, I will not have watched it.
Today, I was supposed to be at the Visions du Réel festival in Nyon. Our movie Back to Višegrad has been selected. And I am stucked at home.
Me, Antoine Jaccoud, my co-director, Amel Djikoli, our DoP, Igor Iskra, our sound engineer, Vladimir Pavlović, our translator, Ervin Blažević, our driver and much more. But also Budimir Zečević and Djemila Krsmanović, the main characters of our film, and all the pupils. Our fixers, Milan Višnjevac et Ruzica Marjanović. And our producer Elisa Garbar too. Our editor Dejan Savic. And the whole post-production team, Rodney Musso, Jean-Baptiste Perrin, Jérôme Vittoz, Denis Séchaud. Aswell as the composer of the music of our film, Mario Batković.
In France, Switzerland, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, in Serbia in Slovenia
We are all confined.
September 2018, the last shooting day. The last time we were all together. During a long year, we were editing, and making the post-production, color calibrating, sound design, mix. At the end of March 2020, we were ready. Back to Visegrad was finished. We planned a private projection in Bosnia for all the people who took part to this movie. And then. It seems we still have to wait a bit.
