Screening as part of Walled Cities 5, the award-winning No Man’s Land is the story of ordinary soldiers who are trapped in the middle of political and military conflict during the Bosnian War in 1993.

Ciki (Branko Djuric) and Nino (Rene Bitorajac), a Bosnian and a Serb, are soldiers stranded in no man's land, a trench between enemy lines during the Bosnian war. They have no one to trust, no way to escape without getting shot, and a fellow soldier is lying on the trench floor with a spring-loaded bomb set to explode beneath him if he moves. The absurdity of their situation would be comical if it didn't have such dire consequences. 

The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Dr Gul Kacmaz Erk, senior lecturer in Architecture at Queen’s University, with guest speaker Dr Drew Mikhael, Queen's Centre for the Study of Ethnic Conflict.

This event is part of CACity presents: Walled Cities 5, a short film season exploring political conflict in divided communities and walled cities around the world. Presented by CACity (Cinema and Architecture in the City) Research Group (www.cacity.org) in collaboration with Queen's University Engaged Research Seed Fund and Nerve Centre in Derry/Londonderry.

Walled Cities also includes the ‘buildingPEACE’ Exhibition of the Cinematic Architecture Studio in the QFT foyer. Find out more here.
