Then Comes the Evening

Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina | 2019 | 28 min

In the lush pastoral hills of Eastern Bosnia, two old women share solitude. The care they have for each other is not composed of words, but rather their daily conduct. They are in a conversation with the land, welcoming the voices of nature, and the songs of a memory that is dying out.
