In a refugee camp Roska in Ljubljana, Slovenia, a group of young Bosnian refugees engages in an everyday task of preparing TV news. There is no way they could broadcast them; there is no audience. There are only video recordings of the "broadcasting". However, they represent an extraordinary insight of the life in the camp, confronted with the history and what remains of it in the official media presentations. The picture depicts a whole-day preparation of the evening news (13th July 1993).
