CALENDAR OF EVENTS for 2017

JHC Film Club will be screening "Miss Sarajevo” (1995) 33 mins, USA. Directed by Bill Carter. Guest Speaker: Associate Professor Hariz Halilovich, RMIT

Miss Sarajevo is a surreal and startling portrait of Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia, during the height of the city’s siege. Winner of the International Monitor Award, Golden Hugo, and the Maverick Director Award (Newport Beach Film Festival). Instead of following the scenes of carnage that the main media so often squeezes into thirty second dramatic sound bites, Carter’s camera follows the alternative scene of artists, young people and the people determined to live as normal a life as they could under the most difficult and dangerous conditions.
