Film

We are delighted to present a screening of the Fog Of Srebrenica.

Survivors of the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide talk about the events leading up to the mass murder of 8,372 Bosnian men. When women and children were carried off in buses and along the way witnessed “their” men, half-naked on a soccer field. One of the girls, 13-year-old Zinahida, thought they were being driven to their deaths while the men played soccer.

The film presents interviews that are structured in chapters, each of which handles a new phase of this atrocity: the chaos and desperation, the starvation, the severely weakened Bosnian militias marching through the woods – a hellish ordeal that few survived. The sometimes-shocking images of the past drag up the horrors of a nightmare that just won’t end.

Following the screening, there will be a short audience-panel discussion afterwards to reflect on the film and its meaning.

The panel will be chaired by well-known and respected Irish News journalist, William Scholes. The panel will include:

  • Judith Thompson, NI Commissioner for Victims and Survivors;
  • Brenda Skillen from the Northern Ireland Muslim Family Association and Remembering Srebrenica NI Board;
  • Rev Colin Hall-Thompson who is Senior Chaplain to the Mission for Seafarers and member of the Remembering Srebrenica NI Board.
