Filming the spirit of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Bosnian program at ENFF 2019

In this program of five films, we focus on the territory that was and still is very attractive for foreign filmmakers. Film directors – Turkish Didem Pekun, Italian Claudia Tosi, Croatian Ranko Paukovic – created quite intimate, poetic works that deal with dramatic strands of life in different parts of the country.

A profound essay ARAF by award-winning director Didem Pekun, travels between Srebrenica, Sarajevo and Mostar. Ranko Paukovic’s THE END OF DARKNESS reveals the last female miners in Bosnia and Herzegovina, while compelling observational documentary MOSTAR UNITED by Claudia Tosi depicts a struggle against nationalism.

Screneed at this year’s Berlinale, THE STONE SPEAKERS by Bosnian-Canadian Igor Drljaca brings contemplative images and intriguing stories from different corners of B&H.

The program also presents co-directed debut of the Bosnian-Dutch and Bosnian-German directors Bernard Brkic and Luka Radovic. Their film HOPE about buried emotions and relationship gone cold, will have its dutch premiere at Eastern Neighbours Film Festival.

Save the date:  6-10 November, Filmhuis Den Haag
