Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 31: "No Man's Land" -- Oscar-winning black comedy about Bosnian War

When: March 31, Thursday - 7:30 PM
Where: IUPUI, Lecture Hall 102

Sponsored by The Philosophy Club Film Series and the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI

"No Man's Land" (Nicija zemlja) is a very highly reviewed film about the Bosnian War circa 1993, I think winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2001. I haven't seen it, but have wanted to for a couple of years, I'm looking forward to it.

A Bosnian soldier and a Serbian soldier are trapped together in a trench in “no man’s land”--the area between both sides’ front lines. They discover that there is a third man alive in the trench who has been placed on top of a land mind while unconscious. While never giving up their mutual animosity, they seek assistance by contacting the United Nations base. The UN command decides not to intervene, but an international journalist has picked up the story and presses the UN to do something. Tensions continue to increase both inside and outside of the trench. One critic writes, “Tanovic's picture brilliantly, brutally captures the fog of war that blinds both sides leaving a riddle without an answer, a volatile bomb that can't be defused.”
