Grbavica 2006
In the wars in the former Yugoslavia during the 1990s, more than 100,000 people were killed. Many of them were buried in mass graves before their families had a chance to identify them. It's estimated that 20,000 women were systematically raped in Bosnia. Writer and director Jasmila Zbanic has made a poignant and emotionally gripping film about a woman who lives in Sarajevo and struggles with her nightmares and secrets from the war. The power of the drama comes in its graphic depiction of the after-effects of ethnic war on the bodies, minds, and souls of those who have managed to survive but will never be the same.

Esma is a single mother who lives with her 12-year old daughter, Sara, in the Grbavica district of Sarajevo, a neighborhood once used as an internment camp during the Yugoslav wars. Unable to get by on government aid, Esma works two jobs to make ends meet. When Sara wants to go on a school trip, questions arise about her father, who is supposed to have died as a war martyr. Gradually, Sara comes to realize that her mother has never told her the truth about the war years, and the truth threatens to tear them apart...
