FUSE Gori vatra
I thought some of you might me interested in seeing this movie. I heard it was excellent. The ACF auditorium is rather small, so my recommendation is to go to the 6 pm screening as it will be less crowded.

FUSE Gori vatra
Bosnia and Herzegovina, two years after the war. Teanj, a small picturesque Bosnian town. On the surface - good, open-hearted people, a market place, tradition, and neighborhood. Under the surface - ethnic intolerance, crime, prostitution and total corruption. Then, news arrives about the forthcoming visit by US President Clinton. Under the supervision and with wholehearted assistance of the international community observers a frenzied race with time starts in an attempt to build democracy in seven days. In this race the whole town goes completely crazy...
