Bosnia and Hercegovina: Ordinary People Documentaries

Ordinary People is a series of short TV documentaries about strong individuals from Bosnia who managed to overcome the trauma of the 1990s war and put the past behind them. They are contributing to the process of reconciliation in this ethnically divided country through art, sports, business ventures and other economic activities, working with members of other ethnic groups. The films were produced under the Ordinary Heroes project, funded by the Norwegian Embassy in Sarajevo. This project is being carried out by IWPR and its partner in Sarajevo, the Post-Conflict Research Centre.
