Synopsis This brilliantly controlled debut feature opens with a jolt symbolic of the dangers buried beneath the surface of a small rustic village in Bosnia. Two years after the civil war has officially ended, Serbs and Muslims are trying to live and work together. A dryly humorous tone contrasted with a shrewd sense of reality, even in the tragic legacy of post-war Bosnia, balances this beautifully wrought political satire. Times are tough indeed, and everyone has to make his or her living in some sort of illegal way. It's an unflinchingly honest and darkly funny depiction of a poor, corrupt community struggling to hide its unlawful activities, unhappy alliances, amidst an attempt to establish some sort of democracy. Pjer Zalica combines techniques from 1960s East European comedies and his background in documentaries to generate a steady stream of sparks, built around a single, quasi-political event (Clinton is planning a visit).

About the Director Pjer Zalica was born in Sarajevo in 1964. He graduated from the Department of Directing at the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Sarajevo. He then went on to complete a course in film screenplay writing and film production at the Gronjan International Film School. Author of several screenplays for film and TV, Zalica has also co-written a screenplay for the first post-war feature film from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Perfect Circle. Pjer is currently a Professor in the Department of Directing at the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Sarajevo. His most recent film, Days and Hours (2004), recently was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Synopsis After his friends are killed in a bizarre, bar room argument, Goran devises an unusual plan to deal with the loss: he will sell his house, buy a mobile tavern and travel from town to town, giving away free drinks to everyone he meets. But for everyone except Goran, the idea is strangely suspicious, and a bit absurd, in director Antonio Nuic's darkly humorous tale of loss and reconciliation, told as a metaphor for Bosnia's gradual rediscovery of its shared humanity, lost during the war.

He graduated in Film and TV Directing from the Academy of Dramatic Arts in Zagreb, Croatia and is a member of the Croatian Film Directors Society.

ON DVD: Spring/Winter 2013


Bosnia & Herzegovina’s official submission to the 2012 Academy Awards


Synopsis Ruveyda is like most residents of the Belvedere refugee camp: a widow yearning to forget the tragedy of war, fifteen years after the ethnic cleansing of Bosnia and Herzegovina. But unlike those around her, she spends most of her days in a bittersweet routine of caring for her extended family, and searching for the remains of her husband and son—both of which offer a precarious hope that is one day tested when her nephew is selected to participate in a reality show in a former enemy enclave. An emotionally rich portrait of war’s troubled aftermath, director Ahmed Imamovi?’s film paints an uncommon image of patience, faith, love, and above all, forgiveness.


About the Director Ahmed Imamovi? was born in Sarajevo in 1971. He majored in Directing at Sarajevo’s Academy of Performing Arts, and has worked as cameraman, assistant director and screenwriter for documentaries and commercials. His first feature film, Go West, won the Audience Award for Best Film at the 2006 Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival in New York. Belvedere is his second feature film.
