Muslim teenager Safija arrives at her aunt Halima’s house in 1977 asking for help as she has discovered she is pregnant by her Christian boyfriend Slavomir.   What follows is a devastating story, a Greek tragedy, about an extended family who stumble upon a terrifying truth years after “ethnic cleansing” had murderously torn the former Yugoslavia apart.   HALIMA’S PATH is not a war movie, but it’s an intimate post-war portrait of a family destroyed by the war.
 
“The big discovery … was a film from Croatia entitled “Halima’s Path”, a minor key masterpiece that deals with post war trauma after the Bosnian civil war….Wherever it has been shown so far audiences have been wowed.” – Alex Deleon, FilmFestivals.com
 
Powerful and moving, the film has been picking up awards at festivals worldwide.” – Nick Holdsworth, Hollywood Reporter
 
Language: Bosnian/Croatian (English subtitles)
