Product Description

Filmmaker Sabina Vajraca documents her Bosnian Muslim family's return to their home of Banja Luka, Bosnia, to recover their stolen belongings many years after being forced to flee to the United States in this riveting film. In Bosnia, they witness the devastation of the city, visit war crimes sites, and confront the family that has been living in their former apartment -- with all their furnishings -- for a decade.

Review

...a fascinating and sporadically unsettling account of her Muslim family's return to their homeland after years of exile in the United States. --Variety

The powerful documentary Back To Bosnia grabbed everyone by the heart and placed us on the streets of Banja Luka, director Sabina Vajraca's hometown. --Hollywood Film Festival

This is a decent account of a family attempting to re-claim an apartment and small farm in Bosnia years after the end of the war (around 2005). Filmed in a gonzo style journalistic format which works for this kind of subject. But the film is somewhat unfocused and tries to cover too much ground without going into enough detail. For example, it drifts from the story about the attempt to re-claim the apartment to some other horrific events which occurred during the war--and of much more impact than the apartment story--then returns to the apartment. One no longer thinks that issue is so important when compared to the other events.

Still, for a first-person account of the horrors of the last Balkans War, I can recommend this movie as a good supplement to other movies and books.

I learned a lot. Ali Hanson really pulled it together and made a fine film. Aspects of the story made me cry but also it provided a voice we don't always hear.
