Description

Aida, a U.N. translator, hopes to protect her husband and sons during what would become the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, one of the worst atrocities in the Bosnian War following the post-Soviet breakup of Yugoslavia. QUO VADIS, AIDA? is this series’ lone shift into straightforward realism in its harrowing depiction of not only the events themselves, but the myriad details that defined how different individuals experienced this real-time situation. This includes detailed aspects like the shred of privilege that Aida and her family had in the U.N. “safety zone”—one that was as fragile as it sounds.
