Kino: Epizoda u životu berača željeza
Friday Night at the Kino presents: Epizoda u životu berača željeza (Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker) In Bosnian w/ English subtitles. Nazif barely makes ends meet as an iron picker to support his Roma family. He searches daily for scrap metal while his partner Senada tends to their home and children. After long day’s work, Nazif finds Senada laid up in pain. When they go to the doctor’s, they learn that her condition is critical, but because they have no health insurance or money for treatment, Senada is forced to return home without the crucial surgery she needs. A race against time starts in which Nazif will do everything he can to save Senada’s life. In the film that recreates an actual episode from the life of a Bosnian Roma family, the members of the family play themselves.
