  • Ahmed Imamovic – Belvedere (2010)

    2001-2010Ahmed ImamovicBosnia HerzegovinaDrama

    The film deals with the tragedy of the women survivors of the Srebrenica genocide, or rather, the consequences of the horrors they experienced – it is about women whose sole purpose in life is to locate the bones of their loved ones and give them a decent burial.

  • Aida Begic – Snijeg AKA Snow (2008)

    2001-2010Aida BegicBosnia HerzegovinaDrama

    The first Bosnian film to win the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival’s International Critics Week focuses on six women living in a small village one year after the war has ended. All of the men (including male children) have been rounded up and killed by the Serbian army. The surviving women work hard to keep the village’s only industry, jam and sauerkraut production operational. It’s grueling work to create a delicate product that the women then transport in handcarts through rough mountainous paths to sell on the roadside. We see the women raise the orphaned children left behind all the while trying to keep each other’s spirits up with games and craft projects but the fact remains, the only commonality they have is that their former middle classic lives have been transformed by tragedy.

  • Danis Tanovic – No Man’s Land (2001)

    Drama2001-2010Bosnia HerzegovinaDanis TanovicWar

    Set in the same place and about the same war, “No Man’s Land” is like the grown-up version of “Behind Enemy Lines.” It’s a bleakly funny parable that could be titled “Between Enemy Lines.” In Bosnia in 1993, Serbs and Croats find themselves trapped in the same trench. Anyone who sticks his head up gets shot. And when will that land mine explode? The setup seems artificial until you reflect that things like this probably do happen in the confusion of war. As the film opens, a few Croatian fighters are lost in a battlefield fog, and decide to wait until dawn to go further. When the sun burns away the mist, they find themselves staring directly at Serbian troops. Some are killed. Ciki (Branko Djuric) falls into a trench and is spared.Read More »
