  • An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker

    2013. Bosnia and Herzegovina/France/Slovenia. Directed by Danis Tanovic. Tanovic's latest film, set in a Roma community in central Bosnia and Herzegovina, is constructed from real-life events as remembered and reenacted by its subjects. When an iron picker's critically ill wife is refused medical treatment, their harrowing odyssey of survival provides a damning critique of the social conditions that trap them. 71 min.
