How does time pass – waiting, hoping, fearing – after a long escape, in search for a little piece of future? A “container village” for refugees at the borders of town. A transit space where everyday life merges with memories and pictures of the past. THE BLOOD WE SAW explores this life in a state of uncertainty and gives a notion of how people there might feel. People who left everything behind and still cannot forget anything of what they’ve lived through.
