Quo vadis, Aida?

OT: Quo vadis, Aida?

Jasmila Žbanić // Bosnia and Herzegovina, Austria, Romania, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, France, Norway, 2020
Fiction Feature // FF2020



After her harrowing drama about systematic rape in the Bosnian war, Jasmila Žbanić’s new film deals with the massacre of Srebrenica – no less harrowingly. Srebrenica, July 1995. Aida works as an interpreter for the UN. When the Serbian army moves into the Bosnian enclave and takes power, she seeks shelter with thousands of others in the UN camp. Bitter political negiotiations begin which Aida has to translate – and from which she learns fateful, terrible information. Despite this explosive knowledge, she hangs on to the hope of being able to escape the fate that threatens to engulf them.


JASMILA ŽBANIĆ (*1974) worked at the Bread and Puppet Theater in the USA, before she founded her own film company in her home town of Sarajevo in 1997. Her debut feature Grbavica – The Land of My Dreams won the Golden Bear in Berlin in 2006.
