Jasmila Žbanić for Balkan Rivers
Bosnian director and supporting Artist for Balkan Rivers Jasmila Žbanić was nominated for two Oscars for her film "Quo Vadis, Aida?". Last October, she spoke up about Bosnian rivers and against their destruction in the N1 Bosna i Hercegovina interview. “Constructing these mini-hydropower plants on our rivers is really a crime, I mean its a murder and anyone who gives such permission is, for me, a complete criminal. I hope people will be smart and realize that once a river is destroyed, it is destroyed forever and that we have to fight for them, just as we fight for our children - I don't see any difference at all” she says.
