Synopsis

The film consists of material shot during the 1914- 1918 World War, collected into the archives of the great Empires involved in the clash, and mainly the Tsarist and Austro-Hungarian ones. The work consists of the contrast between the military “report films” concerning the conditions of the war prisoners, of the orphans, of the refugees, of women and children and of the fallen of both sides; mirrorimage events shot by “enemy” cameras on the edges of battles. The story also follows the movements and dispersions of different ethnic groups that operated on the various fronts and that after defeat underwent deportation to places distant from their motherlands.
