Jasmila Žbanic's Oscar-nominated thriller draws on true events of the 1995 Srebrenica, showcasing a narrative based on the fighting spirit of a mother.
Drawing on the true events of the 1995 fall of Srebrenica, this gripping, Oscar-nominated thriller tells the story of a United Nations translator attempting to save the lives of her family, whilst pandemonium and escalating conflict rages around them.
Without depicting anything more explicit than a slap in the face, writer and director Jasmila Žbanic masterfully delivers a film of universal urgency and power. Quo Vadis, Aida is a heart-rending story of courage and resilience in the face of man’s terrible capabilities; of those who knew what was happening and those who looked away. At the same time it is a profoundly moving, intensely personal story of a mother fighting to keep her family together. As fierce and spellbinding as its lead performance, this unforgettable film is testament to the indomitable human spirit.
