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.

Kim Sadique, Head of Community & Criminal Justice (Acting) will introduce the film and briefly discuss her recent trip to Bosnia as a Community Champion with Remembering Srebrenica.
