Tea Tupajic a Bosnia born director asked Dutchbat veterans Frank and Harm to spend a night with her in a theatre. A woman, a man and a camera: through this simple set-up Darkness there and nothing more concentrates on the words, gestures and acts in these two meetings, which are often captured in dark camera frames. It shows a dialog between two worlds that simply won’t combine, despite a shared longing for deliverance. Harm carries a huge sense of guilt, while Frank is entirely locked off from his emotions. Tupajic tries to explain that none of her family and friends, despite being alive, really survived the war. Will they ever understand each other’s grief?
