Dara of Jasenovac
First look at Serbia's Oscar submission.

Serbia has selected director Predrag Antonijević's Dara of Jasenovac as its submission for this year's Academy Awards. Inspired by the testimonies of survivors, the film addresses the genocidal campaign carried out against Serbs by Croats during WWII. Young actress Biljana Čekić plays 12-year-old Dara, a prisoner at the Jasenovac concentration camp who vows to protect her younger brother when the rest of her family is executed.

A UK/ROI release for Dara of Jasenovac has yet to be announced but you can check out the trailer, poster and a featurette below.



The official synopsis reads:

After the Axis-led Kozara Offensive the majority of local Serb population ends up in Croatian Ustaše concentration camps.

With no information about whereabouts of her father, twelve-year-old Dara, her mother and two brothers end up in Jasenovac. Her mother and older brother get killed by Ustaše.

Dara makes it her personal mission and goal to insure the survival of her younger brother.
