“I came to Sarajevo nine years after the war officially ended. The first night n Sarajevo I met Alden and Azra. After he heard for movie I am making, Alden invited friends and asked them to come to the restaurant where we were to meet. Soon after that, I had more than enough women that I needed for filming. On the other hand, Azra offered me to translate what women who do not speak English are saying, and also enabled me to wash my laundry at her house“, stated she.
Rawlings has met other people in Sarajevo among many, she met Fahreta.
“Fahreta invited me to her house at a lunch, and also gave me a lamp which I still have. Total strangers in a foreign country helped me to realize my dreams“, stated Rawlings in a mail.
