Kid, an unreliable witness

Kid, an unreliable witness

Video “Kid, an unreliable witness” refers to two aspects of war testimonies. The first is less percentage of testimonies by children, since their memories are considered less objective and realistic then those of adults. The formal structure of frames directly alludes to this. Children are also seen as those who more easily forget since they have a whole life ahead of them. The second aspect is territorial specification of war-affected countries which often excludes countries which have been affected in the long term even though they have not been affected directly. Serbia, being “punished” for several times for its involvement in wars in the Balkans, is one of these countries.
