Namık Kabil’s Heart of Wood documentary is about a man who makes the heart of wood and then he plays it. Ćamil Metiljević uses his two hands for hard manual labor, but also to make a magical music instrument and play it. Director Kabil was born in Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he studied medicine before the war broke out 1992. In 1993 Namik left the country and moved to Los Angeles where he studied film and become a member of the theatre group The Grace Players, where he worked as a director, writer and actor. He wrote a novel, Alone, and several award-winning screenplays: “Days and Hours”, “The Ruin”, and “The Last Day”. In 2007 his documentary “Interrogation” won “The Heart of Sarajevo” for Best Documentary at the Sarajevo Film Festival. His feature Nightguards had a world premiere in 2008 at the Venice Film Festival.
He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
