Synopsis:

By using a combination of light and sound – spoken testimonies and images of the places where the crimes took place, Depth Two is an experimental documentary about the mass graves in the suburbs of Belgrade. In a meditative and hypnotizing manner, the film speaks directly to the experiences, imagination and emotions of the audience. Depth Two is an attempt to resist the oblivion that has been nurtured, by uncovering, shedding the light and giving voice to those stories which are still buried in silence.
