documentary by Duska Zagorac
>>I started off by making a film about the Chinese in Bosnia but in the process realized I was also making a film about the Bosnians in exile. At the same time, I found myself a mere observer of the new Bosnia, a society I no longer belonged to. So Patria Mia became almost like a letter to my lost country <<
Duska Zagorac, director
Here is the interview that I did with the director of the movie Patria Mia – Nomad Direction, Duska Zagorac, on transnational identities and Chinese community in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The movie Patria Mia was part of the project „Bosnia and Herzegovina: In Search for Lost Identity“. What does lost identity mean for you?
The idea behind this project was that each director would make a film that would interpret the theme in a very personal way. This meant that the twelve films that were made as part of this project were all very different.
