‘War-shattered lives 20 years after – Bosnian Women telling stories of displacement and emplacement’

 
 

As a part of our mentoring exchange programme and the cooperation with professor Brad Blitz at the Middlesex University within this project, we have set out to produce a short, educational documentary film, with a working title ‘War-shattered lives 20 years after – Bosnian Women telling stories of displacement and emplacement’.

This film is partialy based on the ethnographic study of this project, and focuses on the relocation and everyday life of displaced women from Eastern Bosnia in Sarajevo today, but above all on the psychosocial health and returnee reality of women in Kozarac and Prijedor, twenty years after their traumatic war-displacement experiences.

The filming part is conducted in Sarajevo, Kozarac and Prijedor from 27-30th of May, while the editing and production remains to be completed till end of August, 2016.

Sequences from the film with material being filmed in Sarajevo and Kozarac will be screened on World Refugee Day, 20th of June, at the Middlesex University 15-16 pm, as a pre-view, open to students and wider audience for discussion.
