DIRECTOR: Danis Tanovic - BOSNIA

After living in exile in Germany for 20 years, Ditko returns to his hometown in Communist-free (1991) Yugoslavia to start a new life. He comes back in style: sexy girlfriend Azra, new Mercedes, loads of cash, and a precious cat named Bonny. But he also has revenge on his mind: his primary target is wife Lucija who failed to follow him to Germany when he was forced to flee. He kicks her out of her/their house while trying to reconnect with his now 20-year-old son, Martin, who is far more interested in Azra than in him. But soon war reaches the town, and once again overriding life choices must be made. Tanovic uses his absurdist tale to illustrate the beginnings of the bloody internecine strife in Bosnia, making clear both the incredulity and opportunism set in motion by the dissolution of Yugoslavia. (113 mins.)

Filmography: No Man’s Land (01), Hell (05), Triage (09).

Winner of the Audience Award at the Sarajevo Film Festival.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature.
