‘In Flow of Words’ voices the contradictory position of three interpreters as human cogs in the judicial machine, working with dramatic testimonies from victims, suspects and those accused of war crimes in the former Yugoslavia.
In Flow of Words follows the narratives of three interpreters of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. They interpreted shocking testimonies from witnesses, victims and perpetrators, without ever allowing their own emotions, feelings and personal histories to be present. Contrary to their position at the tribunal, this film places their voices and experiences center stage.
