Quo Vadis, Aida?

Feature Film, BA/AT/RO/NL/DE/PL/FR/NO/TR 2020, digital, 104 min, OmdU

Bosnian director Jasmila Žbanić dedicates her subtle, stirring war film about the genocide of Srebrenica in 1995 to “The women of Srebrenica and their 8,372 murdered sons, fathers, husbands, brothers, cousins, and neighbors …” As the translator Aida tries to save at least her two sons in the hopelessly crowded UN refugee camp, the past, present, and future collapse around her.
