| DVD

Set during the Balkan war of the 1990s As If I Am Not There is based on true events and tells the story of Samira (Natasha Petrovic) a young woman from Sarajevo whose life is shattered the day a soldier walks into her apartment and tells her to pack her things. Rounded up with the other women from the village and imprisoned in a warehouse in a remote region of Bosnia she quickly learns the rules of camp life. However the day she is picked out to 'entertain' the soldiers the real nightmare begins. In a final act of courage or madness Samira decides to make one last stand: to dare to be herself. And this simple act saves her life. Based on Croatian writer Slavenka Drakulic's real life experiences overseeing the proceedings of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia at The Hague.

Juanita Wilson directs this stark portrayal of a young woman's survival of the atrocities of the 1990s Bosnian War. Natasha Petrovic stars as Samira, a young Bosniak primary school teacher from modern Sarajevo who takes a job in a small country village just as the war is beginning to gain momentum. When Serbian soldiers take over the village, shooting all the men and forcing the women into hard labour or prostitution, Samira finds herself forced into a makeshift brothel where she is subjected to repeated rape and acts of violence.
