Inspired by true events, director Jasmila Zbanic, herself a survivor of the war, revisits Bosnia’s Srebrenica massacre. Winner of European Film Awards, an Oscar nominee and this year’s LUX Audience Award finalist. A breathtaking story, masterfully performed.
Bosnia, 11 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 civilians seeking shelter in the UN camp. As an insider to the negotiations, Aida has access to crucial information that she needs to interpret. What fate awaits her family and people – rescue or death? What move should she make?
