Dusan Milic, Serbia, 2022


In the mountainous outback of Kosovo, surrounded by a dense forest, MILICA lives with her mother Vukica and grandfather Milutin. When night falls, the family barricades itself inside the house, petrified of the psychological terror coming from the woods. Is that fear of their house being under siege an echo of the recent war or is it just their imagination as Italian officials of the NATO-led Peacekeeping force, KFOR would have them believe?
