The Harriman Institute is pleased to partner with the Bosnian-Herzegovinan Film Festival, the Post Conflict Research Center, and the Srebrenica Memorial Center to present a virtual screening of the 2020 film Quo Vadis, Aida? (Where Are You Going, Aida?) and a discussion with screenwriter and director Jasmila Žbanić in conversation with Tanya Domi (SIPA/Harriman Institute, Columbia Univeristy), human rights lawyer Sandra Orlovic, Velma Saric (Post-Conflict Research Center; Balkan Diskurs), and Emir Suljagić (Srebrenica Genocide Memorial), moderated by Dijana Jelača (Brooklyn College).
Quo Vadis, Aida? is a new film directed and produced by Jasmila Žbanić, the award-winning filmmaker from Bosnia and Herzegovina who earned the Golden Bear in 2006 for her debut feature Grbavica: The Land of My Dreams. Žbanić’s latest film is a dramatic depiction of the well documented Srebrenica genocide that occurred in Eastern Bosnia on July 11, 1995, when more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys were murdered by the forces led by Bosnian Serb Army commander General Ratko Mladić.
