Video Letters

These two programs collect episodes from the documentary series created by Dutch video makers Eric van den Broek and Katarina Rejger, who offered survivors of the Balkan wars a chance to reconnect with people from their past. The format is simple—the survivor videotapes a message, the producers deliver it, and the recipient has a chance to respond. But there's nothing simple about the emotional wreckage recorded here—in one episode a woman asks her former captor to help locate her children's remains. Amid all the wrenching confessions and tearful reunions a sense of the quotidian emerges, showing how many modest lives were touched by the savagery.
