The early 1990s saw tragic war take place in the crumbling former Yugoslavia. Director Ivana Horvat’s family fled when she was just two years old after a close sniper attack. Having returned to her family’s homeland in what is now Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ivana and Adrian take us on a journey in the great city of Sarajevo, discovering roots, culture, and people who are still very much torn apart from a war that pitted neighbor against neighbor.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
