Award-winning Bosnian director, Jasmila Žbanić, whose film Grbavica won the Golden Bear Award in 2006, arrived at the Venice Film Festival this year with her new film, Quo Vadis, Aida? – and received high praise and enthusiastic reviews. The film takes us to Bosnia on July 11, 1995, at the height of the war. Aida works as an interpreter for the United Nations in the small town of Srebrenica. When the Serbian army occupies the area, her family is among the thousands of residents who flock to the UN camp in search of asylum. As a UN employee, she tries to do everything to save her husband and children, but as the military power plays get more and more complicated, her mission becomes a never-ending challenge.
