The award-winning director of Grbavica: The Land of My Dreams returns with a powerful drama focused on one of the most shameful moments of recent European history.

Jasmila Žbanić's drama unfolds in 1995, just as the Serbian army have entered the mostly Muslim Bosnia town of Srebrenica. Aida (Jasna Djuricic) is a translator for the UN. Her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp. But as an insider to the negotiations, she has access to crucial information that forces her into the untenable position of deciding between her obligation to those she loves and the role that has a wider impact.

Žbanić's humanity, locating her story on a relatable level, within an event that many of us might find impossible to comprehend, is what raises Quo Vadis, Aida? far above the level of the standard war film.

"This horrifying tale is lent a profoundly human heart, ensuring that we keep on watching" - Mark Kermode
