Bosnian ‘Land’ in Oscar derby

Pic has earned kudos at Cannes Film Fest

The Union of the Filmmakers of Bosnia and Herzegovina has announced “No Man’s Land” as Bosnia’s first official entry submitted for the foreign language film Oscar.

Written and directed by Danis Tanovic, who also composed the film’s score, the United Artists pic centers on a Bosnian and a Serb trapped in trenches between enemy lines. The movie earned critical praise and screenplay kudos at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

“No Man’s Land” is slated for release in Gotham and Los Angeles on Dec. 7, with an expansion to follow. It has already played at numerous North American film fests and will compete in this year’s AFI Film Fest.
