Kosovo, 1999. A freezer truck driving along the Serbian-Romanian border carries the bodies of 55 Albanian civilians that have been killed by the Serbian police. It runs off the road and plunges into the Danube River. Between 2001 and 2002, five mass graves containing more than 700 bodies are discovered in the suburbs of Belgrade, near the former training facilities of Serbian Anti-Terrorist Forces. Contemporary images of these sites blend with testimonies from the International Court of the former Yugoslavia, uncovering and elevating voices that have been intentionally buried in silence.
Ognjen Glavonic's meditative and hypnotic debut documentary appeals to the viewer's imagination by returning to the scene of these crimes with new intention. Depth Two premiered at Berlin, São Paulo, Sarajevo, Thessaloniki, Vancouver; Beldocs, where it won Best Editing; Message 2 Man, where it won the Grand Prix, KineNova, where it won Best Director & Best Screenplay; and Festival dei Popoli, where it won Best Feature Film.
