In an isolated Bosnian village two years after the end of the war, the women and children attempt to reorganize their community. While the fates of missing husbands and fathers remain a mystery, they consider doing business with their former enemy—the Serbs. Through exquisite moments of sorrow and joy, Begić captures the complex and delicate interplay between the generations of women in a film that looks with honesty at rebuilding a postwar society. Winner of the International Critics Week Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Snow was Bosnia and Herzegovina’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award. 2008, 35mm, in Bosnian with English subtitles, 99 minutes.
