When one thinks about the First World War in Germany, the reference points are primarily the battlefields on the Western Front. “1914/2014 - Battlefield of memory“ proposes a shift in perspective.

Director Hans-Werner Kroesinger and filmmaker Regine Dura conducted research, commissioned by the Goethe Institut in Belgrade, Istanbul and Sarajevo, placing the different perspectives side by side. What is remembered and how? Which images of the enemy get constructed, and which figures of identification? What role did they play in the recent war in the former Yugoslavia?
