Remembering the Others, 2015, 46'00”

The documentary "Remembering the Others" by Ana Čigon (Slovenia) gives the word to students, artists, theorists and activists who speak about the meaning and power of public monuments in Kosovo (and elsewhere). Which people have the privilege to be represented in monuments? Why there are almost no monuments dedicated to women in Kosovo? Which other people (marginalized groups) and stories are excluded in such monuments? The film states that if the (hi)stories of marginalized groups are hushed, and the (hi)stories that have visibility are not questioned, the result will always be a misleading sense of normality. A status quo that creates a platform that gives certain groups the push to the top positions and other groups the push to oblivion, all accompanied by a deceptive sense of fairness and normality. The film epilogue opens way to ideas about what kind of monuments people want for the future.
