NEW ADDITION: An intense drama about the massacres in Srebrenica

Bosnia, July 1995. Aida is a translator for the UN in the small town of Srebrenica. When the Serbian army takes over the town, her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp. As an insider to the negotiations Aida has access to crucial information that she needs to interpret. What is at the horizon for her family and people—rescue or death? Which move should she take? With this as a backdrop, director Jasmila Žbanić – who herself survived the war in Bosnia – tells a story about what happens when society fails to react on time to warning signs.

QUO VADIS, AIDA? is a new addition to the programme.
