Som fugle i bur

Lizzi Weischenfeldt, Denmark, 1994

45 min.DK/Documentary

Ivana and Dalibor are two young fates among many in previous Yugoslavia. They live temporarily in a refugee camp and have experienced three years of war and horror. They have lost their parents, their family and their brothers and sisters. They are waiting all the time, and they are used to wait and wait, and they dream of education, family and a future, but is there any? The children tell about great and small things, about children's home, a different childhood, and lack of concentration at school, about war experiences and sad memories.
