In “The Abandoned” – which explores the horrific problem of children born out of rape and often abandoned – a 13-year-old boy lives in an orphanage waiting for his mother to come for him. The film screens with the short “The Way We Played” (Samir Mehanovic, Bosnia & Herzegovina, 2006, 13 min.), in which violence among children playing games evolves in an environment of increasing nationalism. Producer Almir Sahinovic introduces both films.
