CHIMERA hallucinating media and war crimes

Chimera focuses on events that took place in Vukovar, Croatia, in November 1991. With the use of symbolic reenactments and archival footage, it creates a juxtaposition of court archives of the ICTY and news media narratives during the Yugoslav Wars, to investigate the dangers of mis- and disinformation by the media.
