THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Grbavica
DIRECTOR: JASMILA ŽBANIC
BOSNIA
Esma is a single mother who lives with her 12–year–old daughter, Sara, in the Grbavica district of Sarajevo, a neighborhood once used as an internment camp during the Yugoslav wars. Unable to get by on government aid, Esma works two jobs to make ends meet. When Sara wants to go on a school trip, questions arise about her father, who is supposed to have died as a war martyr, or "shaheed." Gradually, Sara comes to realize that her mother has never told her the truth about the war years, and the truth threatens to tear them apart. Žbanic's brave debut film explores the painful long–term effects of war on a Bosnian woman and her daughter in a country struggling to find meaning in the devastation left behind. This year's Bosnian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. ( 91 min )


First Feature Film.
