CANNES 2018: THE LOAD BY OGNJEN GLAVONIC
By Mónica Delgado
In his documentary Depth Two, Serbian filmmaker Ognjen Glavonic exposed the horror of the Kosovo war, lived at the end of the nineties. The documentary arises from an investigation he was making precisely for the argument of The Load, his first feature film. In that documentary, premiered at Berlinale, Glavonic showed through testimonies in voice over, the finding of a refrigerated truck with 55 corpses of Albanian civilians, killed by the Serbian army and tossed in a big mass grave. This indignation finds his fictional part in The Load, projected in Quinzaine de réalisateurs.
