17 years after the Srebrenica genocide, people still gather once a year to bury their loved ones. For some it is an intimate event, for others a collective political gathering. Screens are used to protect: umbrellas not only protect against the burning midday sun, but also offer protection against the gaze of others, or a way to narrow one's own field of vision. Cameras are used in a similar way: helping to see, but also helping not to see too much, and to retain the distance.
