(A) Torzija



During the three and a half year siege of Sarajevo from 1992 to 1995, the only connection of Sarajevo’s ordinary people with the outside world was a tunnel, which they secretly dug out under the runway of the Sarajevo airport. People called it "The Tunnel", but it looked more like an underground gutter … Fit for animals, not for humans … If this tunnel could speak, it could tell thousands of sad stories … Setting out on a European tour from the besieged Sarajevo, an amateur choir must leave town via the tunnel, but a pregnant cow needs their help first.
