WINNER - EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS – BEST FILM, BEST DIRCETOR, BEST ACTRESS 

Inspired by true events, writer/director Jasmila Žbanić’s gripping, Oscar-nominated thriller tells the story of a United Nations translator attempting to save the lives of her family, whilst pandemonium and escalating conflict rages around them.

Bosnia, July 1995. Jasna Ðuričić is an English teacher in the small mountain town of Srebrenica. When the Serbian army ignores a formal UN ultimatum and begins a series of round-ups and brazen shellings, Aida and her family find themselves among over 30,000 besieged citizens attempting to shelter in a UN peacekeeper-operated military base on the outskirts of town, designed to house only a few thousand.

Aida’s skills as a translator enable her to eventually bargain her husband and two sons inside, literally under the wire.

As fierce and spellbinding as its lead performance, this unforgettable film is testament to the indomitable human spirit.

In Bosnian and Dutch with English subtitles.
