Return to Bosnia – Film screening and discussion

Join UTS FASS during Social Sciences Week for a screening of Australian documentary Return to Bosnia.

Twenty-five years after fleeing a brutal civil war in Bosnia, Damir Mitric returns to uncover the pain and trauma that still divides his homeland. 

Following the film, we will be joined by film-maker Damir Mitric and the Founder and Director of the Bosnia & Herzegovina Futures Foundation Edhem (Eddie) Custovic for an insightful discussion.

More than two decades on – Where are we now?  What have we learned?  How do we create opportunities for future generations?  

We look forward to exploring your questions. Please click here to register.

Return to Bosnia:

Now a historian living in Australia, Mitric returns to Bosnia, reuniting with his family and friends, and meeting those working to rebuild a nation borne of bitter ethnic and religious divisions.

From his childhood home in one of the most besieged cities in modern history, to a former concentration camp and to mass graves, Mitric confronts the incomprehensible: How could your neighbours turn into killers? And how can you rebuild lives and communities devastated by violence?
