Synopsis
Based on the 1992 journals and drawings of Sarajevan visual artist, Alma Hajric, who, along with her friends from an arts collective, was forced into a basement shelter to survive the siege of her hometown. "Black Kites" focuses on the woman's interior landscape--her hopes, fears, and dreams--interwoven with daily acts of being. Non-linear, dreamlike and spectral, "Black Kites" reveals the simple, sometimes beautiful, yet brutal truth of her existence.
