I went to a refugee camp near Mostar in order to do some filming for a humanitarian organization (Mission without Borders), which works there. While there, I was struck by the problems these internally displaced people face, but also by the courage and creativity with which they live in such difficult surroundings. One man, Pavao Tuljić, played for us on a Bosnian traditional instrument called the šargija. (A šargija player is called a "šargijaš".) Below is a short video I made of an interview with him and then him playing. (For those who don't speak Bosnian, you might want to skip to the part where he is playing!)
