The Stream

Germany (MIFF 1994, Documentary)

Director: Garry Lane

Produced as part of the Bosnian War Protest Film Project, this striking short is based on a true refugee story. The film carries a universal message and, although about the war in Bosnia, it speaks across cultures posing the age-old moral paradox of whether it is permissable to take one person's life in order to save another. The Australian-born director cleverly reveals his narrative without dialogue or text to produce a very moving piece of work.
