Bosnia and Hercegovina: Twenty Years Later

A series of short TV documentaries about life in Bosnia and Hercegovina 20 years after the start of the 1992-95 war which tore the country apart.

The films, produced by IWPR and Mebius Film, feature people whose lives were changed by the war, but who managed to overcome ethnic and political divisions at the worst of times. They are stories of humanity and moral courage, of people coping with the consequences of war as best they can, and hoping for a better future.

The films were produced under IWPR's Programme for the Western Balkans and the ICTY, funded by the Norwegian government.
