Snow - Snjeg (2008)

Aida Begic, Bosnia and Herzegovina

"Snow does not fall to cover the hill, but for every beast to leave its trail." Eastern Bosnia, 1997. Six women, a grandfather, four girls and a young boy live in war ravaged and isolated village of Slavno. Their families and friends had been killed and their bodies had never been found. The first snow brings full isolation and risk for life in the village. It gets closer as villagers headed by Alma, a young stubborn woman who believes they can survive, tries to find their way out of poverty by selling plum jam and other fruits and vegetables their village is famous for on a deserted road. Two businessmen visit Slavno demanding residents to leave the village offering money in return. Villagers face a dilemma: should they accept the offer that could save their lives, but destroy their souls. A sudden storm traps the businessmen in Slavno, forcing t"hem to face a problem bigger than anything they expected - the truth!

«This is the film that introduced me to the elegiac and brave filmmaking of Aida Begic. After that, I was hooked. Her heart is on her sleeve and each film is proof.»
