quo vadis aida

In the midst of the occupation, a woman gets caught up in the men's war game. In July of 1995 in the Bosnian town of Srebrenica, standing on the edge of one of the most shocking events in recent history: the extermination by the Serbian army of 8,732 Bosnian civilians. Aida is an energetic teacher turned into a UN translator whose family is also in jeopardy, a privileged witness to the negotiations that are so close to her heart. This film, presented in Venice, displays brutal honesty whereby not only do the killers but the United Nations itself go down in flames by action or omission.
