The award-winning director of Grbavica: The Land of My Dreams returns with a powerful Oscar nominated drama focused on one of the most shameful moments of recent European history.
Bosnia, July 1995. Aida is a translator for the United Nations in the small town of Srebrenica. When the Serbian army takes over the town, her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp. As an insider to the negotiations, Aida has access to crucial information that she needs to interpret for the growing number of families fleeing the violence, but answers are lacking. What is on the horizon for her family and her neighbors, what is her role as both communicator and refugee, and who will come to their rescue in this crucial moment?
Screening in Serbo-Croatian / Bosnian / Dutch / Serbian - with English subtitles.
Both screenings will be followed by a live panel discussion to mark Srebrenica Memorial Day.
