BIRN’s missing persons film gets US premiere

Posted on

BIRN Bosnia and Herzegovina will hold the US premiere of its latest documentary, ‘Missing You’, on Thursday October 23 at Columbia University in New York.

The movie will be screened for students of human rights and transitional justice and historical dialogue practitioners.

A discussion is planned after the screening because the movie, produced earlier this year, explores the issue of missing persons not only in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but in a global context too. 

The documentary also raises important questions about what the search for missing persons entails for those who have survived, and what it means in terms of the practical challenges and DNA analysis that define these searches on a technical level.

The documentary produced by BIRN Bosnia and Herzegovina was first screened in July in Sarajevo. This is its first US screening.
