«The Korida operators were the first people to reach out to one another after the war.»
When Siniša Vidovic embarked on his first documentary KORIDA he planned to pay tribute to the tradition of Bosnian bullfighting. It soon turned out to that it wouldn't be a film about the Korida but a film about Bosnia and the post-war period.
