2010. Bosnia and Herzegovina. Directed by Ahmed Imamovic. With Sadzida Setic, Nermin Tulic, Minka Muftic. Patience, faith, love, and forgiveness are tested among a community of Bosnian Muslims 15 years after the Srebrenica genocide. Imamovic’s visually arresting portrait of war’s aftermath—rendered with gorgeously austere black-and-white cinematography—follows the stoic yet vulnerable residents of the Belvedere refugee camp, who are mostly widows. The film contrasts their search for real justice and reconciliation with a crass, infantile TV-reality-show simulation. In Bosnian; English subtitles. 90 min.
