the trial of ratko mladic (2019)
title and in-film graphics for 'the trial of ratko mladic', a feature documentary following the former bosnian serb general's trial at the hague – for war crimes he was accused of comitting during the yugoslav wars of the 1990s.
cyrillic-inspired typography contrasts with court documents to illustrate the clash between the mythology of mladic and the legal world of the hague. it's one of many themes throughout the film that is reflected in the graphics. A more sophisticated typographic approach is used for introductory and name cards – one that also implies law and myth without representing everyone within the film in an accusatory way.
