Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton advises her followers on Twitter to watch the movie Quo vadis, Aida? to go and have a look. The film with Dutch actors Raymond Thiry and Reinout Bussemaker competes for an Oscar on the night from Sunday to Monday.
Quo vadis, Aida? , which will not premiere until June due to the corona measures, is about the fall of Srebrenica and the subsequent genocide perpetrated by Bosnian Serb troops. It cost more than seven thousand Muslim boys and men their lives. The Dutch actors play Dutch UN soldiers.
Clinton, 73, who lost the 2016 US presidential election to Donald Trump, has already seen the film and is advising everyone to do the same. “It provides an unveiled look at how genocidal violence can arise.”
Besides Quo vadis, Aida? there is also a chance of Dutch success with the short film The Letter Room , starring actor Oscar Isaac. The film was produced by the Dutch Sofia Sondervan, who moved to New York after high school.
For anyone catching up on their Oscars viewing this weekend, I'd recommend "Quo Vadis, Aida." Telling the story of the Srebrenica massacre through one woman's race to save her family, it's an unsparing look at how genocidal violence happens. https://t.co/McUpggcmPd— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) April 23, 2021
