Ruveyda is like most residents of the Belvedere refugee camp: a widow yearning to forget the tragedy of war, fifteen years after the ethnic cleansing of Bosnia and Herzegovina. But unlike those around her, she spends most of her days in a bittersweet routine of caring for her extended family, and searching for the remains of her husband and son-both of which offer a precarious hope that is one day tested when her nephew is selected to participate in a reality show in a former enemy enclave. An emotionally rich portrait of war’s troubled aftermath, director Ahmed Imamović’s film paints an uncommon image of patience, faith, love, and above all, forgiveness.
About the Director:
Ahmed Imamović was born in Sarajevo in 1971. He majored in Directing at Sarajevo’s Academy of Performing Arts, and has worked as cameraman, assistant director and screenwriter for documentaries and commercials. His first feature film, Go West, won the Audience Award for Best Film at the 2006 Bosnian-Herzegovinian Film Festival in New York. Belvedere is his second feature film.
