The theme – 13th Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival “Untiling the Mosaic”

Our world is a mosaic composed of tiles so different from one another.

Differences in sex, in religion,  in beliefs, in history,  in perceptions, in taste, in financial or societal status.

We used to consider differences as a source of enmity. Later on, we realized that we must learn how to live together with our differences but we haven’t been taught how to do it.

It is about time to “untile” the tiles of our world’s mosaic. To reintroduce the difference and what’s the impact it has on us and therefore find ourselves “anew in an untiled mosaic” where the difference is not something that needs special treatment but it is a solid part of our being.
