Quo Vadis, Aida Zoom Film Discussion

This 2020 film depicts the struggles of a woman trying to protect family and friends during the Bosnian War. Aida is a translator for the UN in the small town of Srebrenica. When the Serbian army takes over the town, her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp. As an insider to the negotiations, Aida has access to crucial information that she needs to interpret. What does the future hold for her family and neighbors – rescue or death?
