Sevdah is a feeling of melancholy, yearning and sorrow. In traditional Bosnian music, it is most poignantly expressed through a traditional mournful song – sevdalinka. The death of Farah, a mutual friend and fellow sevdalinka lover, brings together the musician Damir and the art director Marina, who in order to cope with their own sense of loss and grief, set out to make a film about sevdah. The result is an emotionally charged and visually arresting journey to the very heart and soul of Bosnia, a story of personal loss echoing the destiny of a small country, told through its deeply soulful music.
He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there.
