Women Who Refuse To Die

Rethink Rebuild Society, in collaboration with Remembering Srebrenica, invites you to:

(by filmmaker Mohamed Kenawi)

SUN 24 JUL AT 19:00

Women Who Refuse to Die is film/documentary about women who survived the horror, only to find themselves facing the anguish of having lost loved ones - and trying to find ways to continue, one day at a time.

Twenty years after the Srebrenica massacre, four Bosnian women look to the future despite the pain of their past. This film follows four women who lost fathers, brothers and sons in the massacre, as they look to the future despite the pain of their loss and the angst of trying to make sense of the past.

“When they took away my children in 1995, they also killed me. This is no life. I walk about like a zombie. I’m alive, but not really,” says Hatidza Mehmedovic of the Mothers of Srebrenica Association.

“I had my family and after just one day I was left without them. Every morning I ask myself why. For what reason? But there is no answer. My children’s only guilt was the names they had. … They killed all I had, except for my pride.”

Join us to experience the lives of those women, fighting for their stories to be shared and for lessons to be learnt by the World.

Following the documentary, we shall have an open discussion on the issues raised in the film and on the ways, which we in the UK can use to promote a cohesive community that learns from the past.

Light refreshments and food shall be served.
