Film screening of Grbavica (Jasmila Žbanić 2006)

SYNOPSIS Ten years after the ethnic conflict that left the city of Sarajevo in ruins, the widowed Esma and her adolescent daughter, Sara, struggle to survive in the post-conflict Bosnian reality. The tension between the present and the recent past emerges in the volatile relationship between mother and daughter, which comes to a boil over the issue of Sara’s paternity. Sara is desperate to know more about her father, whom Esma has assured her was a war hero. Eventually, Esma has to reveal to Sara their shared traumatic past.
