(Documentary) In 1885, the story of mine, a relatively young country was written. In an epic 19th-century style, eleven stanzas of a poem retell the battles and heroic actions that led to the recognition of this country as independent. The birth of a sovereign state was glorified, immortalised, cherished there. Praised were the heroes whose blood was shed. Cursed, the enemies by then defeated. It is the story of my country, but it embodies the story of most – if not all – countries. The story of the notion that defines them and keeps them abysmally separated and of the patriarchal system that keeps these distances irreconcilable, sharp, caustic and bitter.
