P21 Gallery invites you to the Film Screening followed by Q&A:
Fog of Srebrenica
A film by Samir Mehanovic
Friday, 8th July 2016, 6:30pm
Survivors of the 1995 Siege of Srebrenica talk about the events leading up the Srebrenica Genocide, the only holocaust in Europe since WWII where 8,372 Bosnian men & boys were killed in just one week. The documentary presents interviews structured in chapters, each of which handle a separate phase of the atrocity, the chaos, the desperation, the starvation, and the hellish ordeal that few survived. The heart-breaking testimonials raise serious and profound questions about the nature of human existence, war & forgiveness.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film director and survivors of the Bosnian War.
