ITALO MORALES // OVERNIGHT GENERATION
Overnight Generation is a post-clash reportage over the complex shades that being young adults can assume in the contemporary Sarajevo. Looking into a fascinating, complex, and often unknown European capital, plagued by what has been acknowledged as the longest siege in modern history, Overnight Generation is a portrait of Sarajevo and a tribute to its young citizens: a generation that had to grow up overnight, while we were asleep.
