‘Quo vadis, Aida?’ tells the story of Aida, a middle-aged English teacher who lives with her husband and two adult sons in a UN base, where they seek shelter and protection after the Serbian army occupies Srebrenica. She works at the UN as a translator and believes that she is safe here. However, the system of protection and empathy is starting to fall apart. Aida has to save her family. Quo vadis, Aida? is an international co-production with Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Netherlands, Austria, France, Germany and Norway. Jasmila Žbanić previously made the award-winning films Grbavica and Na Putu.

To achieve the historical accuracy and photorealism desired by Director Jasmila Žbanić, Visual Effects Supervisor Stefan Beekhuijzen drew from extensive reference materials from the time period in guiding the feature’s visual effects and had visual effects shots filmed practically to capture the real-world lighting. Filmmore was charged with creating all the visual effects shots in this post-war period of the Bosnian War. Handling crowd duplication shots by creating 25,000 people, building full CG environments, 3D photorealistic tanks and crafting post-war matte paintings.

‘Quo Vadis, Aida?’ was nominated for the Oscar of Best International Feature and winner of the Best European Actress, Best European Director and Best European Film on the 2021 European Film Awards.
