Buick Riviera

Directed by Goran Rušinović

Feature film, 2008, 85′

The story of Buick Riviera is told through the fates of two men, both Bosnian (ex Yugoslavian) emigrants, belonging to the two different religious groups that fought for the city of Sarajevo during the War. One fateful night, these two emigrants meet on a deserted road in the middle of America, with some unexplainable force bringing them together. In the next 24 hours, which they will spend together mentally sabotaging each other and trying to figure out who is guilty of what, they will change their lives forever without proving anything, just like the war itself.
