Word of director


"The film is a reconstruction of the actual event and its aims, inter alia, to show what discrimination must face the minorities, especially the Roma in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I think that this story must be seen, not only to discuss the issue of various kinds of alienation and discrimination. It is important to understand through emotion as the victim of discrimination feels to reach the moment when we all ask ourselves: What manner of men we did this happen?

How is it possible that fifteen years after the war - in which I was a daily witness to the incredible bravery and self-sacrifice, when people risked their lives to help others - we live in a society that turns her head away from socially disadvantaged people and behaves as if seen the horror that surrounds us? No system can be human, unless human people themselves among themselves.

I believe that discriminatory behavior against Roma people as is common practice throughout Europe today. I've traveled and I do not think it's a worldwide problem. There are countries where people care about their well, regardless of the color of their skin. "

The theme of the film

"O Senadině case I read in the local newspaper, sometime around Christmas of 2011. I was really angry and immediately called Amre, its known to the producer. We decided to send someone to verify the history, and then I personally visited the village. I met the couple and immediately felt their warmth and hospitality. They were a little scared when I told them that I wanted what happened to them, to make a film. First, they do not much want to, but I told them that I did not have anything like that revolve, and that at worst the film do not show anyone. But I still wanted to try. After a few days we talked again and they agreed. I was not sure how it will turn out, but I felt that I had to do. "

True story

"This is a true story and I really tried to get as close as possible. All the scenes I described the first Nazif and accordingly we tried to play. Without a script. I did not try to do it more dramatic than it was, because it was already pretty incredible.

Senada alive and live in the village you see in the film. It's a gypsy village and I was very grateful for all the help we received. Most of the film was shot in places where everything happened. Almost all the people in the film are real people who have played a role in the actual events. Nazif brothers, cousins, the whole village ... Even the doctor is the same guy who Senad hospital investigated. Not output the only doctor who refused to operate Senado. For obvious reasons, I did not have in the movie, so I asked a friend who is a doctor, if he could not play. Another friend the doctor, I took the role of a doctor who eventually operated Senado. It was for practical reasons, because we were shooting the scene in Sarajevo and our budget was tight. "

Return to roots

"I made ​​this film on a Canon 5D Mark II. During the war I was a filmmaker and I learned to shoot in similar conditions in which I filmed an episode in the life of collector iron, so for me it was nothing new. I was almost happy that I returned to my roots and worked that way. The hardest part was filming with children. Nazif and Senada were very natural especially at first, so we rarely filmed one shot more than three times. "
