Dara of Jasenovac is a drama war film that follows the story of the Serbian people living in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia (now Croatia) during World War II through the eyes of a 10-year-old girl named Dara. This is the first film ever about the concentration camp known as Jasenovac despite it being one of the largest in Europe.
Director Predrag Antonijevic had a chat with Borrowing Tape writer Nace DeSanders about his experience making the movie, which is Serbia's official submission to the 2021 Academy Awards for Best International Feature Film.
Dara of Jasenovac releases in select theaters starting February 5, 2021. Listen to our podcast episode and/or read the transcript, which has been edited and condensed for clarity:
