Jasmila Zbanics “Quo Vadis, Aida?” Dominates the European Film Awards

“Quo Vadis, Aida?” continues to make an impact on the awards cycle. Jasmila Zbanic’s Bosnian war drama, which earlier this year received an Oscar nod for best international feature film, won the top prize at the European Film Awards (EFA) on Saturday night. In addition to winning Best European Film, the film won honors for European director (Zbanic) and European actress (Jasna Duricic).

Written by Zbanic, “Quo Vadis, Aida?” tells the story of a translator working for the UN in the small town of Srebrenica in the days leading up to the 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

Emerald Fennell’s revenge thriller “Promising Young Woman” and Yngvild Sve Flikke’s “Ninjababy”, a comic look at an unwanted pregnancy, were also among the night’s honors. The former won the European Discovery – Prix FIPRESCI, and the latter was named best European comedy.
