    Global Film: Quo Vadis, Aida?

    Full Details

    Quo Vadis, Aida? is set in Bosnia in 1995. Aida is a translator for the UN in the small town of Srebrenica. When the Serbian army takes over the town, her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp. As an insider to the negotiations, Aida has access to crucial information that could help save her husband and sons, as well as her neighbors and friends. What awaits her family and people - rescue or death? Which move should she make? Quo Vadis, Aida? uses one woman's heartbreaking situation to offer a searing account of war's devastating human toll. Although it addresses a specific time, place, and conflict, this unforgettable, profoundly moving story offers a timeless commentary on the ways in which geopolitical events affect individual lives. Run time: 131 minutes A post-film discussion will be held virtually following the screening and will be led by Dijana Jelaca and the Global Film series curators, Prof. Julie Levinson and Prof. Jenny Rademacher.
