Piercing portrait of Bosnian refugees.
Most people cannot imagine what it means, driven by hunger and war, not to see your own reflection in a mirror for a whole year.

And when they eventually saw their own faces, they were all shocked to see their ageing and emaciated countenances. Marjoleine Boonstra portrayed several of them in penetrating close-ups and over the shoulder shots, while they explain how difficult it is to look at reflections they don't recognise, but know to be themselves.
