The experimental-documentary video In War and Revolution tackles both personal and collective amnesia that occurred during political changes and the war of the early 1990s in Croatia. The film’s structure consists of two strands, interwoven through parallel editing. Firstly, there is an interview with the filmmaker’s 97-year-old grandmother who tries to remember her youth as a teacher during the anti-fascist movement in WWII by looking at a photograph from the book The School in War and Revolution. This is interpolated with interviews with several contemporary intellectuals from Zagreb on the subject of the disappearance of books regarded as ‘inappropriate’ in the early 1990s.
