Golden Bear for GRBAVICA


Today, ten years later, Esma and her daughter Sara live in Sarajevo, which is still suffering from the war's effects. The conflicts between the two reach a climax when, by chance, Sara learns the circumstances of her conception. Grbavica was already very well received at the premiere and thereafter considered by many as a potential Bear winner. Jury president Charlotte Rampling, who presented the award together with Berlinale topper Dieter Kosslick at the Berlinale Palast, spoke of a profoundly emotional moment . Grbavica is a coop 99 filmproduktion (Austria) and Debolkada (BIH)production, in collaboration with noirfilm (D), Jadran Film (HR). Austrian support came from the Austrian Film Institute and the Vienna Film Fund.
