Grbavica: Land of My Dreams (Film, 2006, Dir. Jasmila Zbanic, Bosnia and Herzegovina)

Our description: Narrative feature film focused on a mother-daughter relationship in Sarajevo in the aftermath of the civil war of the 1990s. The film tackles the aftermath of war and the legacies of rape warfare in somewhat unexpected ways, with both humanitarian organizations and religious revival in Bosnia in the backdrop of the film, offering varied “therapeutic” discourses and visions for rebuilding life after war and after the media and political attention of the world has shifted to new locations.
