Award Winning Film on Lukomir to Be Screened in Bosnian Village

The documentary "Lukomir – Six Months Off" by Dutch director Niels van Koevorden, which won the Dutch broadcaster VPRO Documentary Award 2010, will be screened in the Bosnian village of Lukomir on July 24 and 25.

Settled at 1,469 metres on Bjelasnica mountain not far from Sarajevo, Lukomir is one of the highest and most isolated villages in Bosnia and attracts many of those eager to see life in an traditional Bosnian village.

The documentary was shot in November 2009 when a group of five Dutch students spent one month living in this snow covered and remote village. Their movie follows the lives of three out of 11 villagers that stay in Lukomir during the winter when the village is completely cut off from the rest of the world.

A special screening of the movie will be shown in an open air cinema in Lukomir that will be set up for the event. In addition to the Dutch documentary, "U zavjetrini vremena – Bjelasnica 1964–‘84" by renowned Bosnian director and screenwriter Vlatko Filipovic will be shown as well. The film tells the story of life in another tiny village on the slopes of Bjelasnica mountain, the village of Lukavac. Parts of the film were shot in 1964 and others twenty years later in 1984.
