Halima’s Path/Halimin put (2012)
Global Lens, 96 minutes

Years before the Bosnian War ravaged their lives, Safija becomes pregnant by Slavo, a Christian man. Beaten and ostracized by her Muslim family, Safija gave the infant boy to her childless aunt, Halima, to raise and told Slavo the child was stillborn. Nearly twenty years later, war has devastated the country. In order to recover the body of her son, who was killed in the fighting and thrown into a mass grave, a grieving but strong-willed Halima must track down her estranged niece to convince her to submit to a blood test for DNA identification of his remains. But this request will uncover a shocking trail of deceptions that will change the lives of the two women forever.

The Bosnian and South Slavic film series features work from Bosnia-Herzegovina, showcasing both classic films and more recent offerings of South Slavic cinema. The series is part of collaborative partnership among faculty at Saint Louis University, Fontbonne University, and the University of Missouri-St. Louis.
