Director: Samir Mehanovic. UK/Bosnia and Herzegovina. 60 mins. What happens to you when you live in a society riven by civil war, when you’re forced to entertain the inconceivable thought that your neighbours are out to kill you? This devastatingly powerfully and deeply moving film traces the events leading up to the mass murder of 8,372 Bosnian men in the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide. Survivors relive each phase of the atrocity: the chaos and desperation, the starvation, the severely weakened Bosnian militias marching through the woods – a hellish ordeal that few made it through. Sometimes-shocking images of the past drag up the horrors of a nightmare that just won’t end. This highly resonant film was the winner of the IDFA Special Jury Award 2015.
