My Own Private War

Synopsis

One of the most honest films that deals with the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Serbian Lidija Zelović grew up in Sarajevo and fled from the Balkan civil war with her family in the early 1990s to the Netherlands. Later she reported as a TV journalist from her home country. In this very personal documentary she makes an inner journey through her memories, places and people she loves. What happens when collective trauma enters a family?
