Still on the frontline
The short documentary film, Still on the Frontline,looks at the issues facing women war rape survivors in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The film follows Amnesty International researcher, Elena Wasylew, as she conducts her research on the ground and includes interviews with survivors, activists and government officials.
Throughout the 1992-1995 conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), thousands of women and girls were raped, many of them systematically and repeatedly. In spite of international outrage and wide-spread media attention, very little has been done in BiH to ensure the survivors’ right to justice, truth and reparation. While most perpetrators have never been brought to justice, the survivors of these crimes are still struggling to rebuild their shattered lives.
The film has been made to promote the Amnesty International Action to demand that the BiH authorities provide survivors in Tuzla with adequate healthcare.
