Additional Notes

In the Name of the Son (26 minutes)
American Film Institute, 2007

After escaping execution, Tarik, a Bosnian prisoner of war, immigrates to the United States looking to leave his past behind. The psychosis of the conflicts that war brought to him when coping with these in civilian life are very hard for him. Years later, the man who spared his life shows up on Tarik's doorstep asking for a favor. However, the two main protagonists' feelings of guilt and torment are brought to bear with near devastating consequences.

Neither Here Nor There (58 minutes)
Refugee Films, 2009

A personal journey of the aftermath of the Bosnian War with interwoven stories of the Selimovic family from Srebrenica, Bosnia who resettled in Columbia, Missouri after the fall of the former UN "safe area". Ten years later, the family re-visits the July 1995 massacre of more than 8,000 Bosnians, considered the worst single act of genocide in Europe since the end of the Second World War. Neither Here Nor There traces the complexities of starting over in a new place when ties to the past remain unbreakable.
