Twenty-five years ago more than eight thousand fathers, husbands and sons disappeared forever from the lives of Bosniak women. One of Europe’s most prominent filmmakers (Golden Bear for the film Grbavica: The Land of My Dreams from 2006) surveys the massacre carried out in the ill-famed city of Srebrenica by the Bosnian Serbs under General Mladić. The story is seen through the eyes of her charismatic titular heroine (the astonishing Jasna Đuričić), an interpreter for Dutch soldiers sent by the UN to war-ravaged former Yugoslavia. This breathtaking, highly evocative drama competed at Venice and was one of the prestigious group of five works nominated for an Academy Award as Best International Feature.
