Отражение войны: культурная травма в постюгославском кинематографе

Исаев Е. М., Комогорова М. К.

This article is an attempt to describe international cinema discourse that has developed over the last decades around the events of the break-up of Yugoslavia through the notion of “cultural trauma”.

In the first part of the article theoretical foundation of cultural trauma and some of its related terms (collective memory) are considered. On the basis of theoretical overview, in the second part of the article we build an analysis of the five post-Yugoslavian films, created in the period of the break-up of Yugoslavia and after it. The analysis of these screen-culture works is intended to give an idea about the international discourse, built around the break-up of Yugoslavia, and the role of the Yugoslavian cinematograph in its formation. Moreover, the article tracks the dynamics in the change of film narrations and portrayal from the earlier to the most modern ones.
