Description: Nedim Alikadić found himself overnight in the occupied part of the city, separated from the free territory only by the Miljacka River. He documented the dramatic moments and shelling of the free part of the city, including the Parliament building and civilian objects, with his video camera. The shaky camera footage perfectly describes the fear of the unknown, as everything happening at the time was indeed unknown. One way to cope with the situation was through humor, born out of sheer suffering and fear. In the background, a neighbor's voice singing is heard. After fleeing the occupied part of the city, that neighbor will be the first representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Eurovision Song Contest in Ireland 1993. His name is Fazla and the title of the song is Sva Bol Svijeta (All the Pain in the World). Used in the film DO YOU REMEMBER SARAJEVO (2001) by Sead Kreševljaković, Nihad Kreševljaković and Nedim Alikadić.
