In 2006, CNN announced the discovery of ancient pyramids, not in Egypt, but Visoko, a small town in central Bosnia... Emir, an emigre removed during the war, returns to his country to assist on a film about the pyramid claims, but finds himself struggling to reconnect with his homeland and make sense of the town's mythic archeology. Buried Land is a fictional story set in a real community and based on actual events. Controversy surrounded the production of the film when the Bosnian press accused the directors of planning a Borat-like production, using a single actor to lure the local people into a misrepresentation. Riffing on these events, the filmmakers made this controversy a part of their story. Buried Land is about how films often miss underlying meanings in their attempts to provide sensation. The real story is of belief and hope as symbolized by the Visoko pyramids and the spirit of a town that has lived through the trauma of war. Official Selection Tribeca, Moscow, Sarajevo, Mumbai, Goteborg. Shot on location in the Valley of the Pyramids, Visoko, Bosnia
