Events with award-winning documentary filmmaker Refik Hodzic.
Refik Hodzic, co-founder of XY Films in Sarajevo and the recipient of numerous awards at international film festivals over the years, will be coming to Goldsmiths.
Thursday, 30 April 5-8pm, Richard Hoggart Building - RHB 309.
A double-bill screening of ‘Justice Unseen’ and ‘Statement 710399’ followed by a Q+A with the Director. For the first time, Refik Hodzic’s two publicly acclaimed films will be screened together in London. ‘Justice Unseen’ is a critical exploration of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia from the perspective of two communities in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Konjic and Prijedor), asking whether the prosecution of war criminals in the Hague has offered justice to the victims of war crimes ‘back at home’ or whether the Tribunal has proved an ‘expensive legal experiment.’ The other film, ‘Statement 710399’ tells the story of a father searching for the son that slipped out of his hand during the Srebrenica genocide, a story that the director says is the story of Bosnia and Herzegovina generally – a country painfully haunted by war crimes and their legacy. Refik Hodzic will introduce both films and take questions afterwards.
Friday, 1 May, 4-6pm, 34-40 Lewisham Way, ground floor seminar room (G8).
A talk in the Anthropology Department (and co-covened with the Global Justice Unit), offered in Refik Hodzic’s formal capacity as the International Liaison Officer for the ICTY. Refik Hodzic will offer a discussion of the legacy of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, its recent capacity-building efforts in ‘the region’ and raise broader issues about the role of criminal prosecutions and international legal interventions in the context of post-conflict social reconstruction projects.
These events have been made possible by the generous sponsorship and practical assistance of the Centre for Visual Anthropology, the Centre for Global Media and Democracy, the Global Justice Unit, the Centre for Urban and Community Research, and the Department of Anthropology, all at Goldsmiths.
